Welcome to your weekly round-up of technologz moves in finance. It may be the blistering heatwave which blanketed most of Europe this past week or an abundance of caution ahead of an upcoming recession, but technology hires have slowed down significantly since the start of the year. Here are the most interesting moves from the past week.  

AIG

He joined the global insurer in July 2020, following over five years at Deutsche, latterly as CIO, Americas. He joined Deutsche in 2014. Shannon started his career at Goldman Sachs, where he spent 20 years between 1994 and 2014 in various technology roles. His final role at Goldman was as head of global head of platform services in securities. 

Pictet Group 

Geneva-based investment manager Pictet Group has appointet Raphael Queralto as a technology platform manager for its Alternative Advisors business. Queralto moved to the new remit in July, after 12 years spent at Pictet.
