SG Hires Geys For Euro Fixed Income Sales
SG Corporate & Investment Banking has hired Raphael Geys as head of fixed income sales for Europe.
SG Corporate & Investment Banking has hired Raphael Geys as head of fixed income sales for Europe. Geys reports to Frederic Desclaux, co-head of fixed income for Europe and Asia. Geys, last sighted at UBS where he was also European head of fixed income sales (DW, 2/11/04), said he took a year out to travel and spend time with his family.
Geys started at SG CIB in London last Monday and is targeting financial institutions. Geys fills the slot vacated by Desclaux, who was promoted in September. Desclaux said the bank intends to boost its fixed income business with further hires, but he declined to detail its plans.
Prior to UBS, Geys spent 10 years at Merrill Lynch where he was involved in pitching a series of now infamous structured rates deals to the Kingdom of Belgium in the 1990s (DW, 12/2/96).
