Alexander Altmann has been named managing director and global head of equities tactical strategies by Barclays.

Altmann will report to Ronnie Wexler, global head of equities distribution, and will be located in New York upon joining the bank in June.

In this recently established global position, Altmann will be in charge of seizing fresh chances through the provision of topical idea generation, which will propel and generate revenue from actionable market information for the Equities and larger global markets clientele.

Wexler stated: “We are delighted to have Alex join the team. With close to two decades of industry experience, Alex has a deep history of thought leadership across the equities landscape complemented by a stellar track record in generating actionable ideas across the markets space. Working in partnership with a wide range of teams within global markets and research, we are confident that our clients will benefit from Alex’s expertise as we focus on deepening client relationships and delivering first class market content.”

Prior to joining Barclays, Altmann held the position of equity macro portfolio manager at Millennium Capital Management.

Before this, he spent ten years at Citigroup as the head of equity trading strategy and was also employed in London by JPMorgan and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
