High-energy shipping analyst Randy Giveans has told clients he is leaving investment bank Jefferies after 11 years.

TradeWinds understands Jefferies is moving swiftly to fill the post, and two sources pointed to veteran Clarksons Platou Securities analyst Omar Nokta as his successor.

Giveans did not identify his new position in a message to senior management teams on Monday, but it is expected to be with a shipowner.
