Westdeutsche Landesbank has hired Jean Michel Darreguet, senior trader at Bermuda-based hedge fund Ross Capital Markets, as head of equity derivatives trading in Tokyo. Darreguet said he is no stranger to the Asian markets, having traded regional equities and particularly the Japanese market, for several years from his Caribbean desk. He replaces Mike Kokalari, senior equity derivatives trader in Tokyo, who left the firm to pursue an MBA (DW, 8/31). Darreguet noted that he and Kokalari had previously worked together at the former Paribas in Tokyo.

Darreguet reports to Robert Brennan, head of trading in Tokyo. Brennan was out of the office and could not be reached for comment.
