LONDON Dec 10 U.S. bank J.P. Morgan has
appointed Viswas Raghavan as head of banking in Europe, Middle
East and Africa (EMEA), according to a memo seen by Reuters.
Raghavan, who joined the bank in 2000, was most recently
global head of equity capital markets, responsible for share
sales including initial public offerings and rights issues.
In his new role, created as part of JP Morgan's decision to
combine its corporate and investment banks, Raghavan will be
responsible for client coverage across investment banking, the
global corporate bank and treasury services, the memo said.
Alejandro Guevara and Lisandro Miguens become co-heads of
banking for Latin America and Tom DuCharme and Therese Esperdy
will be co-heads of banking in Asia Pacific, the memo said.
A spokeswoman for JP Morgan confirmed the contents of the
memo, but declined to comment further.
