Bloomberg News reports that Khanna, a managing director focused on dealmaking in Malaysia, resigned Thursday, one of the people said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. Morgan Stanley had hired Khanna from Deutsche Bank in 2010 to lead its Malaysia investment-banking coverage.
In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Morgan Stanley hired Charles Schwab’s Naureen Hassan for the newly created role of chief digital officer for wealth management.
Hassan will oversee strategy and marketing of digital platforms for the bank’s financial advisers and clients, Morgan Stanley said Wednesday in a statement. She’ll be based in San Francisco and report to Chief Operating Officer Jim Rosenthal and wealth co-heads Shelley O’Connor and Andy Saperstein, according to Jim Wiggins, a spokesman for the bank.
