Former JPMorgan Asia Head Said to Be Questioned by FBI

Gaby Abdelnour, a former JPMorgan Chase & Co. regional chief who expanded the bank’s business in Asia, was questioned by U.S. investigators about his knowledge of a hiring program at the center of an international bribery probe, a person briefed on the matter said.

Abdelnour, who stepped down as head of JPMorgan’s Asia-Pacific business in 2012 and later worked as a senior adviser at Bain Capital LLC, was met by FBI agents while traveling through a New York-area airport late last year and then interviewed, said the person, asking not to be named because the probe isn’t public. Abdelnour and the bank haven’t been accused of wrongdoing.
