(Bloomberg) -- Steve Pettigrew, Bank of America Corp.’s co-head of software investment banking, is leaving the firm to join UBS Group AG, according to people familiar with the matter. 

Pettigrew will start at UBS as a software banker, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. He had been at Bank of America for nearly five years, according to his LinkedIn profile, and was named co-head of software investment banking in 2018.
