He has a surname that is curiously appropriate for the world of financial services, and it certainly reflects his feelings about the region. Indeed, this has been a busy year for Justin Bull, regional head of sales for Barclays Capital.
Bull was transferred to the region nine months ago. In the year to date he has added around 30 to his salesforce in the region including Japan.
Barclays Capital spent 1998 to 2002 building the European business, says Bull. Then between 2001 and now it built in the US, and six months ago we started building Asia much more aggressively.
