Morgan Stanley has appointed Jordi Visser, a managing director in its index options trading group, as a managing director and head of hedge fund sales for its equity derivatives group in New York. Visser, who confirmed his appointment but declined further comment, replaces Bill Levy. Levy left Morgan Stanley in early April to become the co-head of the global equity derivatives marketing group at Lehman Brothers in New York (DW, 4/7).
Visser took over the position about two weeks ago. He reports to Rick Gould, global head of equity derivatives marketing, who did not return calls.
