Citigroup Equity Sales Trader Ward Said to Join T. Rowe Price

Citigroup Inc. equity sales-trader Michael Ward has quit the firm after 13 years, according to a person with knowledge of his departure.

Ward, who was a managing director at Citigroup, is joining money manager T. Rowe Price Group Inc., said the person who asked not to be identified because the banker’s departure hasn’t been announced yet. Ward is moving to Sydney from Singapore, where he was based with Citigroup, the person said.

Ward joined the bank in 2002 and was previously head of hedge fund sales, according to his LinkedIn account.

Ward declined to comment when contacted by Bloomberg. Simon Boughey, a spokesman at Citigroup, also declined to comment. A spokesman at T. Rowe Price in London didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
