Data, portfolio valuations and OTC derivatives trade processing vendor Markit has appointed ex-Morgan Stanley managing director Armins Rusis as executive vice president and global co-head of fixed income. Rusis will join Markit’s New York office and share responsibility for the firm’s data and analytics products with Kevin Gould, executive vice president and a founder of Markit.
