Tata, 44, was chief derivative strategist at RBS Securities Inc., the U.S. broker-dealer unit of Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc, until January. He began work Aug. 4, according to Jim Galvin, a New York-based spokesman for Societe Generale. Tata will report to Stephen Gallagher, the chief U.S. economist.
In the newly created position, Tata will seek to expand the bank’s fixed-income research in the U.S. in line with the firm’s overall goal of gaining a bigger market share of U.S. dollar- bond origination, sales and trading, according to a statement released by the Paris-based bank.
Tata, who is part of Societe Generale’s Corporate & Investment Banking unit, was most recently a global product manager at TradingScreeen Inc., a provider of electronic trading systems.
