Robinson joins Nomura from RBC Wealth Management where she spent two years. She previously worked for seven years as a trader at Nomura International and four years at Royal Bank of Scotland. Robinson graduated in 2006 with a BA in Economics and Sociology at University of York.
Richard Hodges, Head of Unconstrained Fixed Income, says: “I am delighted that Victoria is joining us – her skills and experience in managing Emerging Market and currency positions and risks, particularly through the use of options and other financial derivative instruments, are of particular value to us.”
