ANZ Hires Dresdner’s Richard Huston as Foreign-Exchange Head

Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. hired Richard Huston as global head of foreign exchange based in Hong Kong.

Huston will report to Sydney-based Steve Bellotti, the bank’s managing director for global markets, said Kevin Foley, a spokesman for ANZ Bank. Huston, who joined in May, previously worked at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein as co-head of macro risk and also spent 11 years at Merrill Lynch, Foley said.

ANZ Bank also said it hired Grant Turley as a foreign exchange research assistant based out of Sydney and reporting to chief economist Warren Hogan. Grant, who joined last month, was previously with the Reserve Bank of Australia, Foley said.
