HSBC’s Flint Odds-On to Be Next U.K. Bank Chief to Exit in 2015

With Standard Chartered Plc Chief Executive Officer Peter Sands on his way out, the money is on HSBC Holdings Plc Chairman Douglas Flint to resign.

Embroiled in a scandal linked to tax evasion at HSBC’s private bank, Flint, 59, replaced Sands as bookmakers’ favorite among U.K. bank leaders seen departing this year. Ladbrokes Plc and Paddy Power Plc are offering odds of 1-to-2 and 7-to-4, respectively, for the chairman to step down. HSBC CEO Stuart Gulliver, 56, ranks second at Ladbrokes.
