"Nicholas' breadth of global experience and proven leadership capabilities will serve to significantly enhance our client offering," Eiji Nakai, CEO of Barclays Capital Japan, said. "His appointment will accelerate the already strong momentum of our FICC and equities and advisory businesses in Asia-Pacific, and underscores our ongoing commitment to the region."
