Ronald Tam, a currency options trader at BNP Paribas in Singapore, has joined AIG International in Singapore, where he is responsible for trading options on all tradable Asian currencies. Tam reports to Greg Romundt, senior v.p. and director of emerging markets in London. Romundt said the firm is looking to build its Asian currency presence, declining to comment on whether Tam takes a new position or if he has replaced a trader.
