For Hire

Barclays has lost three of its top technology investment bankers in New York this week to a rival, according to people familiar with the matter.

Reuters reports that Michael Carter, Michal Katz and Erik-Jaap Molenaar have left Barclays to join another investment bank as a team, with Carter and Katz taking on roles as co-heads of technology, the people said.

Bloomberg reports that JPMorgan has named Joyce Chang as its global head of fixed-income research, according to an internal company memo seen by Bloomberg News and confirmed by London-based spokesman Patrick Burton.

Chang replaced Terry Belton, who was appointed the head of global portfolio strategy in the bank’s chief investment office last week, Burton said.

Bloomberg also reports that Morgan Stanley, the second-ranked adviser of announced mergers this year, named Bob Eatroff and Jim Head co-chiefs of mergers and acquisitions in the Americas as the firm reshapes its investment bank’s leadership.

Colm Donlon and Johannes Groeller will lead M&A in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg News. Rob Kindler, 58, remains global head of the business.

And Reuters reports that Raymond James Financial Inc said on Friday that it hired a veteran team from Morgan Stanley that manages more than $204m in client assets.

The three-person team, known as the Sunset Financial Group, is led by Scott Cutliff. He, along with Donald Horras and Patricia Polster, joined a Raymond James office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Reuters also that Richard Bove, a well-known banking analyst with an independent voice who was once sued by a large Florida bank for defamation, appears to be moving on from Rochdale Securities LLC.

Bove told Reuters on Friday that he has not agreed to join any firm, including Cantor Fitzgerald, which was tweeted earlier in the day as the company he is moving to. But he left the door open as to his future.

Finally, the news agency reports that a senior in-house lawyer at Deutsche Bank closely involved with its legal battle with the late media mogul Leo Kirch is among those jailed following tax raids at the bank, two sources familiar with the proceedings told Reuters.

The lawyer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was not available for comment. Deutsche Bank and Frankfurt prosecutor Guenter Wittig declined to comment.
