UK - HSBC has appointed Mike Trippitt as head of European banks research within its corporate, investment banking and markets business, starting March 2003.
He will be responsible for building HSBC’s research franchise in banks, and will take prime responsibility for UK coverage.
Trippitt joins HSBC from Bear Stearns where he was managing director since April 2000. Prior to that, he was an analyst at Schroders Securities and at Warburgs.
Commenting on the appointment, Krishna Patel, chairman of HSBC’s global investment banking division, said: “The banking sector accounts for almost 20% of market capitalisation amongst Europe’s top 300 companies and is a key sector for HSBC.”
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
Smaller FTSE 350 defined benefit (DB) schemes were nearly 15 percentage points less well-funded than larger schemes in 2017, according to a Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) analysis.
The advent of collective pension systems could help the UK avoid demographic challenges which will make it "impossible" for society to help savers in retirement, experts say.
