Bank of America in London has added four professionals to its investment-grade debt origination business. Peter Baillargeon, who left Deutsche Bank's debt capital markets team in London last December, joins Hany Kamel's insurance coverage team. Bank coverage, meanwhile, has been boosted by the hire of Andrew Brown from Credit Suisse First Boston's London-based debt capital markets team, who reports to Mike Coppock. Matteo Tinelli, previously a v.p. on Citigroup's international capital markets team in London, joins BofA to cover a mixed bag of companies. He reports to Felicity Buchan and Ian Harjette, heads of corporate high-grade origination and FIG high-grade origination for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, respectively.

Finally, Casper Bentinck will join the international syndicate desk, reporting to Brian Robertson and Scott Lampard, co-heads; Bentinck was most recently head of public sector and emerging markets debt syndicate at Lehman Brothers in London. The hires are all for new positions, part of BofA's well-telegraphed and ongoing build-out of its global markets business, with a focus on the debt side.

At Deutsche Bank, Baillargeon was an associate on the corporate Spanish desk, reporting to Virilo Morro, director and head of the desk. Brown covered U.K. and Australian banks at CSFB, and reported to Anthony Faulkner, European head of FIG DCM. Citi's Tinelli reported to Eirik Winter, co-head of fixed income capital markets. And at Lehman, Bentinck reported to Lorenzo Frontini, head of European debt syndicate. Wohlin and Winter did not return calls by press time, while Faulkner and Frontini declined comment on any new hires for their teams.
