Nomura is hiring a group of bond traders and salesmen from JPMorgan to replace part of a Latin America credit-trading team that defected to Jefferies Group last year, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
Bloomberg News reports that bond traders David Matty and Jennifer Wohland, salesmen Augusto Pinto and Vinny Medeiros, and corporate credit analyst Marcela Nagib left JPMorgan this month and plan to join the Japanese bank after completing garden leave, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing personnel changes.
More emerging-market hires from other firms may follow, one of the people said. Jonathan Hodgkinson, a Nomura spokesman, and Veronica Espinosa at JPMorgan declined to comment.
Nomura is rebuilding its Latin America debt team after several members, led by Adam Groothuis, left for Jefferies amid efforts by the bank to restructure debt-trading operations worldwide.
