HSBC bankers move to Hong Kong. Agustin Gargallo, a New York-based director for HSBC’s emerging markets debt syndicate, is set to relocate to Hong Kong amid a massive reshuffle within the British firm’s debt syndicate unit. Also set to head to Hong Kong is Alison Chan, a London-based associate within the bank’s EMEA corporate and structured syndicate team.

The two of them seem to have spent most of their careers at HSBC, although Gargallo joined the firm following a two-year stint at Goldman Sachs Asset Management. They will both report to Carla Goudge, head of debt syndicate, Asia Pacific. Reuters
