Standard Bank Group Boosts Cash Equity Expertise

Following the launch of SBG Securities in January 2011, Standard Bank Group has hired a number of cash equity experts to develop international client coverage and trading from London. As the bank continues to add emerging market (EM) cash equity product to the existing global market product suite, sales, trading and natural resource capability are key.

Dylan Pooley will join Standard Bank to head equity trading in London. Having started his career in Fleming Martin in South Africa, he has since held a number of trading roles in both Johannesburg and London. Pooley joins from Citigroup where he ran both natural resource and central and eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) trading teams in recent years. His experience in building both principal and client facilitation businesses in the geographies and sectors upon which Standard Bank focuses will be key in building the bank’s cash equity presence.

Audrey Parker has joined the emerging markets sales trading team, also based in London. She has covered the CEEMEA markets since 1996, having spent time at CSFB, ING and most recently at HSBC where she was head of sales trading for CEEMEA. Parker has covered accounts across UK, Europe and US in markets spanning Russia, the Middle East, C3, Turkey and Africa.

Jasper Crone has joined the cash equity sales desk based in London and will cover both EMs and natural resources. Crone has 11 years’ experience in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) markets in both equity sales and buy-side investment analysis. He joins from Macquarie where he held a similar role. Previously, Crone worked in New York and London for JP Morgan and began his investment career as an EM portfolio analyst at Schroders.

Christian Simpson has also joined the cash equity sales desk in London covering EMs. Simpson joins the equity sales team from JP Morgan Cazenove, where he spent two and a half years in corporate broking within equity capital markets. He covered South African corporates and was involved in a number of natural resource and EM transactions.

Jan van der Does de Willebois joins from Dyer & Blair in Kenya, where he was head of equities. He has several years’ cash equity experience in the sub-Saharan African markets, having worked in Kenya where he was involved in both the brokerage business and capital market transactions. He will start in London and subsequently relocate to Nigeria to cover local and international clients on sub-Saharan equities.
