Twomey, who served as head of Pacific Rim equity financing and sales at Merrill, is the second high-profile departure from the firm’s Asian prime brokerage in as many months. Melvyn Ford, who headed its efforts in the region, left the firm in January.

Twomey will be a managing director and head of global prime finance sales in Asia at Deutsche Bank, based in Hong Kong, Reuters reports. He is set to start in April.
