The asset management arm of Bank of Nova Scotia has hired Damian Hoang as a senior derivatives strategist to assist some of its well-known money managers.
Mr. Hoang heads over from Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he was part of the cross-asset solutions group. His work has focused on hedging and alpha strategies (or in other words, beating the market). He also has a degree in computer engineering, which shows just how much the trading environment is changing.
Mr. Hoang, who will officially work for Dynamic Funds, which was acquired by Scotia, starts next week.
