In the meantime, The Wall Street Journal's MoneyBeat column reports that longtime Bank of America Merrill Lynch financial institutions banker Michael Tan has left the bank, but will remain in Hong Kong to take up a similar role at Credit Suisse, according to people familiar with the matter.
Tan joined Merrill Lynch in 2004, and was most recently managing director and head of Asia Pacific financial institutions in Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s investment banking division.
The bank said on Thursday that Paul Knight and Michael Rawlinson will be co-heads of the team and will join Barclays in the fourth quarter.
