Bank of America’s Irigoyen Named Head of Latin America Economics

Claudio Irigoyen, the head of Latin American fixed-income and foreign-exchange strategy at Bank of America Corp., has been given the additional title of head of economics for the region, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg.

Irigoyen, who has been at Bank of America since 2011, previously worked at Deutsche Bank AG and served as the chief economist and director of monetary policy at the Central Bank of Argentina, according to the memo distributed Monday. He will continue to report to Alberto Ades, co-head of global economics and head of global emerging-markets fixed-income strategy.

“In this expanded role, Claudio will synchronize the efforts of our economists, fixed-income and FX strategists in the region with the goal of delivering a better integrated product,” according to the memo.

Melissa Anchan, a spokeswoman for the bank, confirmed the contents of the memo.
