Barclays promotes MDs in credit team that complained about bonuses

It's not just Credit Suisse: Barclays has also been promoting some new managing directors this week.

Among the promotions, Barclays has promoted eight people globally in its credit team. This follows what Bloomberg described as a threatened exodus of credit trading talent mid-year after allegedly disappointing bonuses. Nonetheless, there are only two traders on the list. They include Varun Garg, who was only hired from Credit Suisse in 2020....

Simon Moore - head of Asia Pacific credit sales, based in Singapore, joined in 2015 from Standard Chartered.

Vanessa Valmant - European head of high grade credit sales, based in Paris, joined 12 years ago 

Casey Edgar - U.S. special situation sales, joined 2013, based in LA

Credit trading:

Varun Garg - structured credit trading. Hired as global head of credit asset solutions from Credit Suisse in May 2020. 

Jayant Kumar - head of EMEA credit solutions structuring, joined from Bank of America in 2018. 

Svetlana Nagimer - U.S. credit structuring, joined from JPMorgan in 2019.

    Barclay's gave my mom giftcards in exchange for carnival cruise. Heres the fun fact. She lives in a little town in hickory, nc and they gave her cards to a one hotel in the entire united states.
