Standard Bank Head of Africa Strategy Bailey-Smith Quits

Stephen Bailey-Smith, the London-based head of African markets strategy at Standard Bank Group Ltd., has left the company, according to an e-mailed response to questions from the Johannesburg-based lender’s external communications provider.

Bailey-Smith, who produced a weekly report on African Eurobonds, has covered the continent’s fixed-income and currency markets for almost 25 years as an academic and analyst, according to Standard Bank. He joined the South African lender from ING Groep NV and studied economics at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies.
