Goldman Sachs has named Kate Richdale and Andrea Vella as its new co-heads of investment banking in Asia excluding Japan, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters on Tuesday.
Reuters reports that they replace Matthew Westerman, who will move to London to become chairman of the firm's Europe, Middle East and Africa investment banking division, the memo said.
In the meantime, Bloomberg News reports that JPMorgan will name Hisashi Moriyama as head of Japan equity research, replacing Jesper Koll.
Moriyama, who has worked at the investment bank since 2002, will also continue to cover the electronics, precision and industrial industry as a senior analyst, according to a document obtained by Bloomberg.
Finally, Bloomberg also reports that two former investment bankers from JPMorgan and Citigroup have started a boutique advisory firm in Dubai, aiming to tap appetite for deals in the U.S. and Canada.
