The CEO of HSBC in Britain, one of the biggest banks in the country, says being open about his sexuality helps him do his job.
Antonio Simoes was speaking at the LGBTI Out on the Street Europe Summit, for senior people in banking and finance, in London today (10 November).
Simoes said it was important for him to be ‘authentic’ to be a good boss and that meant speaking openly about his life and his husband.
‘I am the short, bald, Portuguese, gay guy. I have started to use it as a positive element of my personality,’ he told delegates.
