(Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. partner Lear Janiv will relocate from London to Paris to become head of FICC and equities trading at the bank’s main European Union unit.

Janiv will continue to manage EMEA interest rate products exotics, contingent liquidity solutions and credit valuation adjustment trading. He will work alongside Jules Gruner and Fred Pripp, who will continue to serve as heads of FICC and equities trading in at the EU unit, executives Nirubhan Pathmanabhan, Erdit Hoxha and Peter Hermann told colleagues.

Janiv became managing director in 2015 and partner in 2022.
