Nelson Departs Thomson Reuters for BNP Paribas Securities Services

Barnaby Nelson, who was most recently a business owner at Reuters Pricing and Data, has been appointed head of business development for Asia for BNP Paribas Securities Services. He will continue to be based in Hong Kong and report to Margaret Harwood-Jones globally and locally to Bruno Campenon as head of BNP Paribas Securities Services, Hong Kong.

Barnaby has worked with Reuters since 2001 in a variety of roles, most recently at Reuters Pricing and Data, where he launched and led Reuters’ Asian reference data business. Prior to this role, his experience ranged from sales in the Benelux region to establishing a new, central business unit to manage strategic alliances and partnerships for Reuters DataScope, Europe.

Over the past 18 months, BNP Paribas has opened new offices in Bahrain, Singapore, Poland and Hungary. The bank indicates it is looking to expand further within these geographies and the Singapore office, which opened just over a year ago, will be a full service location. The office will offer clients in the region its portfolio of post-trade solutions, including global and local custody, fund services, treasury and liquidity services and corporate trust services, while the Hong Kong office will provide local custody and clearing.

Margaret Harwood-Jones, head of the institutional investors client segment for BNP Paribas, says: “Barnaby is BNP Paribas’ first senior business development appointment in the Asian region, which is a strategic new location for the bank.“
