The National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD) has taken on Ruth Tape into the newly created role of assistant manager in the middle office at the firm’s London business.

In the position, Tape will assist in providing bespoke trade finance products for NBAD’s clients.

Before joining the bank, Tape worked for eight years in the structured commodity trade finance departments of DBS Bank and the now defunct Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander.

“I am delighted that Ruth is joining an ambitious, growing team and that her arrival will further enhance our trade finance capabilities and ensure that we continue to provide a quality service to our expanding client base,” Jeff Fallon, head of trade finance for Europe at NBAD, tells GTR.
