Two senior Barclays Asia-Pacific investment bankers quit - source

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Barclays Asia-Pacific head of corporate finance Johan Leven and Asia-Pacific head of financial institutions group Helge Weiner-Trapness have quit the British bank, a person with knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.

Barclays Asia Pacific operations have seen a series of senior exits since the bank announced a major restructuring this month, aimed at shrinking its investment banking division globally.

Barclays declined to comment on the latest departures.

The senior Asia-based executives to step down or leave the firm in recent weeks include Matthew Ginsburg, Barclays top investment banker in Asia-Pacific, Robert Morrice, its chairman and CEO for Asia-Pacific and Jason Rynbeck, the bank's top deal maker in the region.
