Exchange-traded bond business XTB has appointed former Deutsche Bank head of rates Ian Martin as its new CIO.
Ian Martin will be responsible for tailoring fixed income model portfolios and separately management accounts for XTB.
Along with his new role at XTB, Mr Martin is also an executive director and co-founder of the Australian Corporate Bond Company (which launched XTBs to the market in 2015).
He has 30 years of experience in fixed income markets, including head of rates, Australian and New Zealand, for Deutsche Bank and head of trading fixed income for General Re financial products.
XTB co-founder and chief executive Richard Murphy said Mr Martin's new role reflects ongoing demand for customised fixed income solutions.
"Ian’s appointment to CIO is a pivotal milestone for the business. He has deep expertise in fixed income markets, home and abroad, and a proven track record of developing fixed income solutions in the institutional market," Mr Murphy said.
"Incorporating both qualitative and quantitative techniques, Ian has already successfully designed a range of fixed income model portfolios. His portfolios seek to optimise defined outcomes for end-clients and are resonating strongly across the market."
