Lehmann previously worked at JPMorgan Chase & Co. where she was responsible for U.S. bank and finance, consumer, pharmaceutical, chemical and U.S. government-sponsored institutions sectors on the investment-grade syndicate desk, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Lehmann didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Her move to HSBC comes at a time of intense high-grade corporate issuance. Sales topped $1.9 trillion last year, a record amount, and are over $1.2 billion so far in 2021, according to Bloomberg league table data. HSBC is ranked 10th for underwriting U.S. investment-grade corporate bonds this year, the same level as the prior year.
