MOVES-JPMorgan Asia equity capital markets head leaves -IFR

HONG KONG, March 24 (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co's

head of equity capital markets in Asia excluding Japan,

David Suen, has left the U.S. bank, IFR reported on Friday,

citing an internal memo.

Suen, who joined JPMorgan as a managing director in 2008 and

previously worked at UBS and BNP Paribas in

Hong Kong, has decided to take a break to spend time with his

family, the memo said.

A spokeswoman for JPMorgan confirmed the content of the memo

to IFR, a Thomson Reuters publication.

It is unclear whether the bank would announce a replacement

for Suen, IFR reported, adding that Nick Johnson remains head of

its equity capital markets business for Asia Pacific.
