Terry Minkey has been named global head of client service and integration at HSBC Prime Services, the firm’s nascent prime brokerage effort.

At Bear, he served as chief operating officer for European prime services from 2004 until the firm collapsed. Prior to joining Bear, he worked at Goldman Sachs for nearly two decades.
