Sad to report.
Bloomberg News reports that he died on July 5 at his home in Gloucestershire, U.K., according to Guy Cornelius, a former colleague and spokesman for the family. No cause was given.
Hardman was head of European flow credit sales at London-based Lloyds from 2010 until March, according to the bank and a LinkedIn.com profile. Prior to joining Lloyds, he headed sales at Evolution Securities, a London investment bank, for 14 months after almost six years as head of U.K. credit sales for certain institutional clients at RBS.
“Mike had an amazing career, influencing a whole generation of U.K. credit fixed income market participants, both bankers and investors,” said Cornelius, who worked with Hardman at several firms including Evolution Securities. “He was a wonderfully caring, compassionate and charitable man and so very, very funny. All who knew him will remember wonderful nights out full of laughter.”
