Jefferies Names Collinson European Co-Head of Consumer Unit

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Jefferies Group Inc., the investment bank that’s been expanding since the financial crisis, hired Michael Collinson from Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc as a managing director and European co-head of consumer and retail investment banking.

Collinson was a managing director in the consumer industries group of global banking and markets at RBS, New York-based Jefferies said today in a statement. He will be based in London and run the unit with Robert Foster.

Jefferies has been adding managing directors from the world’s biggest banks. In September the firm hired Reinout Koopmans from Deutsche Bank AG as co-head of European equity capital markets. Jefferies also hired Thomas Fetzer from UBS AG in August as a managing director in its global industrials group, based in Frankfurt.

“Michael’s hiring brings to Jefferies a highly respected senior consumer banker with strong M&A expertise to lead our European business in this sector,” Benjamin Lorello, global head of investment banking and capital markets, said in the statement.
