PARIS (Reuters) – France’s largest listed bank BNP Paribas <BNPP.PA> said on Monday that the London-based co-head of its foreign exchange, commodities and debt trading unit, Adrian Boehler, will step down, less than a week after the bank disclosed disappointing third quarter figures.
Boehler’s co-head Francisco Oliveira will head the unit on his own. A bank spokeswoman said Boehler will remain in the bank, but she did not specify what his role will be.
BNP Paribas last week reported weaker than expected third-quarter revenue, dragged down by the performance of the trading unit.
