    Schrum now joins Michael Collins at BNTB, his former colleague from HSBC.

    This signals a major shift away from HSBC…

    What could be next?

      What could be next ..

      Interesting question, probably a listing on a US Stock Exchange, quickly followed by an outright purchase by some foreign banking entity.

      Of course I’d be happy with a just a nice rise in share price in the short term.
