Citigroup picks Wikstrom as head of U.S. G10 rates trading

Citigroup appointed Roland Wikstrom as the head of U.S. G10 rates trading after the previous head Nicolas Brophy left the bank, a Citigroup spokesman said on Wednesday.

When asked, the spokesman declined to offer a reason for Brophy's departure.

Wikstrom's group trades the government debt and interest rates products of the Group of 10 industrialized countries.
