LONDON (Reuters) - HSBC has appointed Rob Ritchie as co-head of its Global Banking division in the UK, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters on Tuesday.
Former Goldman Sachs banker Ritchie will join in September and work alongside Philip Noblet, HSBC said in the announcement.
The move comes as the British bank seeks to grow its investment banking business in its home market, the co-heads of the global banking division Robin Phillips and Matthew Westerman said in the memo.
A spokeswoman for HSBC confirmed the contents of the memo.
