March 7 (Bloomberg) -- Royal Bank of Canada Capital Markets hired Christophe Duval-Kieffer as a global inflation-linked bond strategist.
Duval-Kieffer will be based in London, RBC Capital, the investment-banking unit of Canada’s largest lender, said in an e-mailed statement today. He joined from Standard Chartered Plc where he was head of quantitative strategies, and previously worked at Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Credit Suisse Group AG, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
He will be responsible for “all major inflation markets” across Europe and North America, RBC said. “Inflation will be a key theme in 2011, making Christophe’s appointment both timely and complementary to our global rates platform,” Stevyn Schutzman the global head of fixed-income and currencies research at RBC, said in the statement.
