Lisbon and London, in an initial public offering expected later
Sources said the group could be valued at more than 1.5
billion euros ($2 billion) on its market debut.

industry, working in both Europe and Asia at institutions
including Royal Bank of Scotland and ABN Amro Bank

and report to Group Chief Executive Dominique Cerutti.
