HSBC has hired Deutsche Bank's Chris Smith for a hedge fund sales post.
Smith was named head of foreign exchange sales at the bank. He will be based in London and report to Robbert Sijbrandij and Claude Goulet, co-heads of foreign exchange and commodities institutional sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The hiring follows a shake-up at HSBC, with former head of hedge fund sales Michael Spencer leaving in April and Smith's predecessor, Ben Homsy, moving to San Francisco.
Smith will begin his new job on Nov. 5.
