Feb. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Morgan Stanley, owner of the world’s largest brokerage, named Matthew Hornbach head of U.S. interest- rate strategy.
Hornbach will move to New York from Tokyo and report to Michael Eastwood, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg News. Sandra Hernandez, a spokeswoman for the New York-based firm, confirmed the memo’s contents.
James Caron, the company’s former head of interest-rate strategy, left the firm earlier this year, and his responsibilities were assumed by Laurence Mutkin, who became global head of interest-rate strategy.
Hornbach has worked at Morgan Stanley for 11 years and was most recently head of non-yen trading in Tokyo, according to the memo.
