BNP Paribas seeks derivatives head for Asia

BNP Paribas is looking for a head of interest rate derivatives trading for Asia-Pacific, following the departure of Monty Agarwal in mid-October.

An official for the French bank said Singapore-based Agarwal, who joined BNP Paribas in September 1999, left for "personal reasons", adding that he "will be replaced in the future". Meanwhile, TS Cheah, Hong Kong-based head of derivatives marketing, is temporarily covering Agarwal’s responsibilities.
