HSBC hires ex-Barclays banker as head of M&A Asia Pacific: sources

HONG KONG (Reuters) - HSBC Holdings has hired former Barclays banker Jason Rynbeck as its head of mergers and acquisitions for Asia-Pacific, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter.

Rynbeck left Barclays on May 8, Reuters previously reported, amid a global shrinking of the lender's investment banking division.

He will join HSBC later this year after a period of leave following his departure from Barclays, one of the people said.

A spokesman for HSBC declined to comment.
