Barclays has named Richard Taylor head of its investment banking division for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, replacing Tom King as the bank overhauls management of the unit.

Taylor will also keep his job as head of investment banking for the U.K. and Ireland, London-based Barclays said in an internal memorandum seen by Bloomberg News.

In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Michael Schoen has left his position as Credit Suisse’s head of debt capital markets for Latin America, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because he isn’t authorized to comment publicly.

And Bloomberg reports that Alfredo Viegas has joined Nomura as Managing Director for fixed income principal strategy with a focus on emerging markets.

Viegas said in an e-mailed response to questions that he joined Nomura in New York from Knight Capital Group Inc. (KCG), where he was an emerging markets managing director before in October.

Finally, Reuters reports that the former head of UBS's French arm has been placed under investigation as part of a months-long probe into allegations the Swiss bank aided clients evade taxes, a judicial source said on Monday.

Patrick de Fayet was placed under investigation and judicial supervision for allegedly marketing financial placements aimed at allowing subscribers to hide funds from tax inspectors, the source said.
