Markit has appointed Charles Longden as managing director in Fixed Income and Credit. Longden joins Markit from ABN AMRO where he worked for 12 years, most recently as global head of credit trading and eco-markets. He was the chief architect of the iBoxx CDS Notes, the forerunner of the iTraxx CDS indices which Markit now owns.
In his new role Longden will focus on expanding the firm’s fixed income and credit businesses. He will also develop new products and services designed to bring greater transparency and liquidity to the fast-growing carbon markets.
