People News: JPMorgan, Credit Suisse.


JPMorgan is losing credit trader Chris Bruner to Tradeweb Markets, where he will help run the company’s corporate-bond trading unit, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Bloomberg News reports that following a career at some of the biggest players in credit markets, Bruner will move to Tradeweb in the summer as a managing director in its North American credit-trading business to focus on product development, according to the person, who asked not to be named because the details are private

Tradeweb is among firms trying to popularize bond trading over computers, picking up the slack left by the traditional middlemen - banks - devoting less capital to buying and selling the debt. 

In the meantime, Reuters reports that Credit Suisse appointed Ihsan Essaid as a managing director to its M&A group, covering media and telecom in the Americas, according to a memo seen by Reuters on Monday.

Essaid is based in New York and reports to Robin Rankin and Greg Weinberger, co-heads of global M&A, the memo said.
