Senior management changes at HSBC

Ritchie left HSBC in 2019 when the bank reshuffled its senior management, and shortly after Julian Wentzel was appointed to a new role as head of Global banking UK and international Europe.

Wentzel had joined the bank in 2015 as head of banking at HSBC Africa and relocated to London to take up his new position. Earlier in his career, he served at Macquarie Group, where he spent more than nine years in various roles.

Before leaving the firm in 2015, Wentzel headed the cash equities division for Macquarie in Europe, which included all products sold within Europe to the UK and European institutional investors.
