Citi Building Sign

Reuters reports that BNP Paribas Asset Management, the investment management arm of BNP Paribas, appointed Melanie Aimer to the newly-formed role of global head of client experience within its client marketing group.

In the meantime, the news agency also reports that Citigroup has hired a senior investment banker from Goldman Sachs Group Inc, Udhay Furtado, in Asia to bolster its equity capital market (ECM) coverage in the region, a Citi spokesman said on Tuesday.

Bloomberg News reports that Jefferies' former top banker in Asia is joining Block.one, the firm behind a recent $4 billion cryptocurrency offering.

Michael Alexander, who until recently was Asia chief executive officer at Jefferies, will head Block.one’s venture capital arm, with a focus on developing projects that rely on the firm’s EOSIO blockchain software, according to a Block.one statement. He will be based in Hong Kong and serve on the company’s executive committee.
