Anthony Arnaudy, head of debt capital markets for Northeast Asia at Standard Chartered, is leaving the bank on Friday.
Arnaudy has been with Standard Chartered for three years and played a role in building the firm’s debt franchise in the region from scratch. He previously worked with Lehman Brothers and then Nomura, where he was head of debt capital markets for Asia excluding Japan.
Late last year, Karby Leggett, previously a director, sovereign solutions, was transferred internally and appointed head of capital markets for Northeast Asia, a role that comprises loans, bonds and securitisation. According to a source, Leggett’s appointment raised questions about Arnaudy’s role at the bank.
There have been other changes at Standard Chartered recently. In November, Cristian Jonsson, previously the head of global bond syndicate, was appointed the bank’s new global head of loan syndications. He succeeded Philip Cracknell, who will retire from the bank at the end of March 2013.
When Jonsson was promoted, Aaron Russell-Davison, previously the head of Asian debt syndicate, was also promoted to be the new head of global bond syndicate. The bank is expected to appoint a new head of bond syndicate for Asia.
In June last year, former Credit Suisse banker Carsten Stoehr joined Standard Chartered as its global head of capital markets, which led to speculation about how he would shape the business.
Bonuses were announced at Standard Chartered on Wednesday and they will be paid out later this month.
