It’s the second recent senior departure from Citi’s stock trading department. Last week, global head of cash trading Armando Diaz left the firm. Diaz had joined Citigroup from Millennium in 2016. At Millennium, Ridd’s new role will entail working on the firm’s central risk desk, according to people familiar with the matter. Central risk operations serve as internal clearinghouses of sorts for trading firms to ensure they’re buying, selling, and hedging their trades efficiently.
