Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) Ltd has appointed Alan Roch as its newest Head of Asia Debt syndicate, according to a Reuters report.
After a quiet Q1 2015, ANZ has made a number of recent moves, notwithstanding a shakeup in its Debt syndicate. Just earlier this week, ANZ added Francyn Stuckey as its Global Head of Capabilities and Client solutions. In his new role as ANZ’s Global Head, Mr. Stuckey will help to fortify the group’s transaction banking business, where he will be based out of Hong Kong, reporting to Carole Berndt.

Mr. Roch’s ascension will help fill an earlier void in the syndicate, following the departure of James Holian, who recently left the role and ANZ. In addition, Joseph Pepping, the former Associate Director on ANZ’s Debt syndicate team, also departed last month after taking up a position at Bank of America Merrill Lynch – he is currently on gardening leave.
Mr. Roch joins ANZ from RBS, having worked as its Singapore-based Managing Director and Head of Bond syndicate in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The move was predated by an earlier stint at RBS in which he headed the Bond syndicate for CEEMEA (Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa) prior to 2011.
