Tony Wong has been appointed head of fixed-income, currencies and commodities (FICC) sales for Asia ex-Japan at Daiwa Capital Markets. Based in Hong Kong, Wong will be responsible for leading Daiwa’s FICC sales efforts in the region.
Wong has 15 years of experience in fixed-income and equity derivatives. He joins Daiwa from Commerzbank (formerly Dresdner Kleinwort) where he was the regional head of sales for fixed income and currencies.
At Dresdner Kleinwort, he spent five years as managing director and head of the Hong Kong office, having overall responsibility for the trading and sales of both the bank’s FICC and equity derivatives products. Prior to that, he was a director in the interest rate, currency and commodities group at Calyon in Hong Kong.
The hire of Wong follows a series of senior appointments made by Daiwa’s FICC division early this year, including: Jimmy Kan as global head of derivatives structuring; Cecil Leung as head of FICC derivatives trading for Asia ex-Japan; Jung Insuk as head of Korean fixed income; and Ajay Marwaha as head of Indian fixed income.
“We are pleased to welcome these proven and experienced FICC specialists to Daiwa," said Toshinao Matsushima, head of the global markets division. "They will be playing a critical role in our plan to build a high quality Asian derivatives platform across rates, fixed income, FX, and equity markets.”
