Trading Places: Credit Suisse nabs Barclays’ Moreno, Jefferies hires Lambert, SocGen’s Oudéa to step down

It was a tough week for Barclays.

Credit Suisse poached Nacho Moreno, the head of investment banking at Barclays in Spain, making him the latest senior hire at the Swiss bank as it adds to its senior ranks after a spate of departures.

Moreno will become head of investment banking and capital markets for Spain and Portugal at Credit Suisse.

Barclays also lost Gavriel Lambert, who was head of consumer and retail investment banking for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at the UK lender. He went to Jefferies as the bank looks to bolster its coverage of the consumer and retail sectors in Europe.

Barclays‘ vice chair of investment banking in Europe is also leaving the sector after 35 years. Mark Astaire — who holds two roles as chair of corporate broking and vice chair of investment banking in Emea — is set to step down from the bank at the end of July.

Another banking veteran, Frédéric Oudéa, chief executive of French bank Societe Generale, also announced this week he will step down from the bank next year. The move from Oudéa, who took charge of SocGen in 2008, calls time on one of the longest reigns by a major European bank boss.

Meanwhile, Citigroup is launching a new team of dealmakers to focus on venture capital firms and family offices, the latest appointment within its European team servicing private equity firms and other alternative asset managers. Tobi Ali, who joined Citi in 2017 to co-head its loans and leveraged finance team in Emea, has been named head of VC and family offices for the region.

Over in asset management, Franklin Templeton has bolstered its ETF sales team in Emea with the appointment of Guillaume Dambrine.

Dambrine, who has worked at Merrill Lynch and Axa Investments, joins from BeBrandon Agency, where he lead campaigns in the food and beverage industry. He takes on the role of senior ETF sales specialist, upping Franklin Templeton’s ETF distribution team across Emea to six.

Aviva Investors, the asset management business of the UK-listed insurer, has appointed Sam Tripuraneni as head of sustainable outcomes. He joins from BlackRock, where he spent seven years — most recently as a director within its sustainable investing team. In his new role, Tripuraneni will oversee a team of eight sustainability specialists and report to Mirza Baig, global head of ESG investments.
