RBS's NatWest Markets Government Bond Traders Are Said to Leave

  • Traders exit amid major restructuring at the securities arm
  • Includes James Konrad, who ran Europe government bonds trading

Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc’s head of European government bond trading and three of his senior colleagues left as the state-controlled lender restructures its securities arm, according to people with knowledge of the departures.

James Konrad, who ran the European desk and Robbie Anderson along with other bond traders Ian Walker and Biagio Lapolla, left the NatWest Markets division over the past few weeks to pursue other opportunities, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. A spokesman at RBS declined to comment.
