Renaissance Capital announces new addition to Sub-Saharan Africa trading team
Arnold has over nine years of trading and portfolio management experience across diverse classes of assets (including Equities, Fixed Income, FX and Derivatives). Prior to joining Renaissance Capital, Arnold was Head of Execution at African Alliance Group (South Africa), managing a team of 12 equity and two fixed income sales traders across Africa. Before that, he was an equity trader at an African focused hedge fund and a number of investment brokerage firms in London. Arnold holds a Level 3 Certificate in Investments from the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment.
Arnold will report directly to David George, Global Head of Trading. Kwame Narh-Saam, who was Head of Sub-Saharan Africa trading, has left the company to pursue other opportunities.
David George, Global Head of Trading, Renaissance Capital, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Arnold to our already well-established trading team in London to support Renaissance Capital’s Sub-Saharan Africa offering. Arnold’s unique experience in equities across the emerging and frontier Africa will allow him to make a strong contribution to our work. Despite the recent turbulent market environment, Sub-Saharan Africa remains key for Renaissance Capital, and hence we are committed to strengthening our capabilities in the region.”
