Deutsche Börse’s Eurex derivatives business has announced the appointment of Lee Bartholomew and Zubin Ramdarshan to key product development roles. Both join the company in the middle of an industry transformation that challenges market infrastructure providers to constantly drive innovation.
Zubin Ramdarshan has been appointed new Head of Derivatives Product R&D Equity and Index. He joins from financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald where he was a managing director for the European ETF business. He has previously held senior-level roles at Jefferies, Macquarie Bank and Bear Stearns.
Lee Bartholomew is Eurex’ new Head of Derivatives Product R&D Fixed Income. He comes to Deutsche Börse from Royal Bank of Canada, where he was responsible for developing the bank’s flow structured rates business. Before, he held senior trading positions in structured rates at Lloyds Banking Group.
Thomas Book, Eurex CEO and Head of Derivatives Markets Trading for Deutsche Börse Group, welcomed the new appointments:
Lee and Zubin bring a wealth of expertise, experience and market knowledge to accelerate our development of new derivatives products at a particularly exciting time for the growth of this segment of the Deutsche Börse business.
These appointments underline Deutsche Börse’s strong commitment to high-quality product engineering and reinforce our capacity to meet customers’ evolving requirements in a challenging and fast-evolving regulatory and trading environment”, added Mehtap Dinc, member of the Eurex Executive Board, responsible for Global Derivatives Product Development at Deutsche Börse.
Despite the continued historic lows in European interest rates, Eurex’ index products have experienced strong growth across its MSCI and STOXX portfolios.
