JP Morgan hires retail structured products head

John Robson joined the US bank in Hong Kong in January, in the newly created role of managing director and head of retail structured products (RSP) marketing for Asia ex-Japan. He was most recently co-head of equity derivatives for Asia ex-Japan at Nomura in Hong Kong. Before joining Nomura in 2005, he had been a senior marketer at Merrill Lynch for seven years.

Robson reports functionally to Tony Best, head of investor client marketing for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and global head of RSP, and locally to Patrick Moisy, head of equity derivatives and convertibles, Asia-Pacific. Since David Long – formerly head of equity derivatives, Asia ex-Japan – relocated to New York last year, Moisy has split his time between Hong Kong and Tokyo. Robson also reports to Mahesh Bulchandani for RSP credit and rates, and works closely with the bank’s Australian origination team.

Lionel Semonin had previously covered Robson’s responsibilities as head of retail structured products for Asia ex-Japan. Semonin relocated last summer to JP Morgan’s London office as head of commodity investor products. He is responsible for expanding the commodity investor business through structuring new products and opening new distribution channels.
