LONDON (Reuters) - HSBC said on Monday it would create a single regional structure for its private bank in Europe which includes its businesses in the UK, Channel Islands, France, Germany, Switzerland and Luxembourg.
"This will create a regional private banking business that is more integrated, strategically aligned and well positioned to deliver continued growth for HSBC Private Banking," the bank said in a statement.
Tucker, who has already spearheaded an initiative to streamline the bank's board, and Flint gave their first hints of what strategy they would pursue at an analyst presentation earlier this month, outlining a plan to cut internal bureaucracy and expand investment in China.
Meanwhile, Franco Morra, CEO of HSBC's private bank in Switzerland, will leave the bank with a permanent replacement to be decided in the coming months. Christophe Guillemot, CFO of global private banking, will take up the position on an interim basis.
HSBC's global private banking business accounted for just over 3 percent of the bank's adjusted global revenues in 2017, according to HSBC's annual report for that year.
