HONG KONG, Sept 28 Nomura Holdings Inc's
head of prime brokerage origination in Asia Pacific,
Mia Bourgeois, is leaving the firm, two sources familiar with
the matter said.
Bourgeois, based in Hong Kong, had joined Nomura as part of
the team that moved to the Japanese bank after it acquired the
European and Asian operations of failed Wall Street bank Lehman
Brothers in 2008.
A Hong Kong-based spokeswoman for Nomura declined comment.
Christopher Antonelli, global co-head of prime services of
Nomura, will be the acting head, one of the sources said.
Prime brokers provide services such as clearing trades and
lending money to hedge funds.
