The head of group compliance for HSBC Holdings Plc said he plans to step down as the bank copes with a money-laundering scandal.
David Bagley said before a U.S. Senate panel on Tuesday that he had recommended to HSBC senior management that it was the "appropriate time" for "someone new to serve as the head of group compliance."
