Nomura has poached Perry Tsea, a senior Hong Kong-based dealmaker, as part of a push to invest in its advisory and capital markets business.
Tsea, who was most recently a director and head of Greater China financial insitutions group (FIG) at Deutsche Bank, joins the bank as an executive director and head of Greater China FIG, according to an internal memo seen by FinanceAsia.
"Perry will work closely with the China, Hong Kong and Taiwan country teams to orginate investment banking and other firm revenues and grow our FIG franchise," according to the memo sent on Tuesday from Kenji Teshima, head of investment banking for Asia ex-Japan, and James Pearson, head of FIG for Asia ex-Japan.
Based in Hong Kong, Tsea reports to Pearson, who joined the Japanese bank almost a year ago from Standard Chartered.
Tsea has spent most of his career in investment banking working at Merrill Lynch, before moving to Deutsche Bank in July 2014, according to his LinkedIn profile.
