  • The markets, corporate finance and global transaction banking divisions will be combined into a single corporate and investment bank (CIB) - to reduce bureaucracy and simplify the organization.
  • Marcus Schenck and Garth Ritchie will co-head the CIB.
  • Marcus Schenck would concentrate on clients, overseeing corporate finance, global capital markets, and the bank's institutional client group.
  • Garth Ritchie will focus on products and processes, supervising equities, fixed income and currencies, global transaction banking, electronic trading, listed derivatives and clearing, research and the division's technology and operations.
