Proprietary FX desks decline in London

Banks in London are cutting back proprietary foreign exchange trading desks by stealth – largely by not replacing departing traders, or by transferring them to other roles.

“There is more of a concentration on the less speculative side of the business towards client-facing roles,” says one recruitment consultant in the City. This comes as banks become more risk averse in foreign exchange in favour of steadier income streams from increasing client business.
