Kevin O'Connor has left Deutsche Bank and joined CLSA as head of transport research for the region. He had been with Deutsche Bank and previously with Bankers Trust in Hong Kong and New Zealand for the previous 10 years.

O'Connor is one of the best known transport analysts in the region. In 2003 he was the number three ranked regional transport analyst in the annual Institutional Investor magazine rankings.

The move comes in quick succession to another transport analyst move, which saw Tim Bacchus leave Morgan Stanley for Lehman Borthers (see related articles below).
