BNP Loses Korea Marketing Duo
Two of BNP Paribas's fixed income derivatives marketers, Jin Oo Shin and Se Hoon Kim, in Seoul have left the firm. Reasons for their departures could not be determined by press time. The pair reported to T.S. Cheah, managing director and Asian head of derivatives and structured products in Hong Kong, who declined comment. Shin and Kim could not be reached.
An official at the firm said it intends to replace the marketers as part a restructuring in Korea spurred by the hire of Bruno Lebeda, treasurer at Credit Lyonnais in Seoul, who starts in Seoul next month (DW, 7/23).
