People On The Move - BofA, BNP Paribas, JPMorgan, RBC Wealth Management

For Hire

Here's a few of the latest moves as reported by Reuters.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch named a long-standing capital markets specialist, Rupert Hume-Kendall, as chairman of its corporate and investment banking business in Europe, after a revamp of the division's management.

Bank of America Corp has also hired Loh Boon Chye, a Deutsche Bank AG veteran, as head of Asia Pacific global markets, according to an internal memo obtained by Reuters.

BNP Paribas, making good on its chief executive's promise to expand outside of its troubled European base, has filled a long-vacant senior sales position in its fixed-income business in the United States.

Jonathan Bass, who since April had been head of high-yield sales at Mizuho Financial Group's U.S. broker-dealer, joined BNP this week to run U.S. fixed-income distribution and origination in New York.

And J.P. Morgan Chase Inc has hired Ahmed Saeed from Nomura Holdings to head up its Middle East business focused on public sector clients, the U.S. bank said in a statement on Wednesday.

Finally, RBC Wealth Management, a division of the Royal Bank of Canada , said on Tuesday it added a team of veteran advisers from Morgan Stanley Wealth Management to join its Dallas office.

Advisers Dick Nierling, and his two sons, Richard and Alex Nierling, and Alan Henry, moved to RBC last week from Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, where they managed more than $230m in client assets and generated $2.2m in annual revenue last year.
