JP Morgan Hires EMEA CEO

The new hire will be based in London, and will oversee private banking and asset management operations.

JP Morgan has appointed Viswas Raghavan as chief executive of Europe, Middle East and Africa, as well as the head of banking for the region’s corporate and investment bank.

He will be based in London, and will oversee the coordination of several of the bank’s EMEA businesses including the asset management operation and the private banking division, which is run by EMEA private banking CEO Pablo Garnica, as well as the corporate and investment banking operation, WealthBriefing understands.

Before being appointed to his current role, he was head of global equity capital markets at JP Morgan. Prior to that, Raghavan was head of JP Morgan’s debt and equity capital markets' businesses for Europe and Asia. 

The appointment comes six months after Daniel Pinto, JP Morgan’s global head of investment and corporate banking, was handed additional responsibilities including joint global head of technology and operations, following the exit of the bank’s chief operating officer Matt Zames. Pinto still remains global head of investment and corporate banking.
