Japanese investment bank Nomura has appointed Malcolm Mui as executive director on the firm's fixed income syndicate desk with responsibility for frequent issuers, regional currency markets and MTNs.
He will report to Mark Leahy, head of Debt Origination and Fixed Income Syndicate for Asia ex-Japan, who joined Nomura in June 2011 to drive the development of the firm’s debt franchise in the region.
Mui joins from National Australia Bank where he established a significant principal investment business focusing on regional credit.
Prior to that, Mui worked at Bear Stearns where he originated, structured, marketed and syndicated cash and synthetic credit products to clients in Asia ex-Japan.
"Malcolm is a key addition to the desk as we step up our product delivery to clients in our target markets," said Leahy. "We anticipate that his structuring, marketing and trading experience of credit products globally will make a significant contribution to an already committed team."
Malcolm began his career in credit structuring and origination at JPMorgan Chase in New York after graduating with a BA in Economics with Honors from Harvard University. He later worked on the structured products syndicate desk at Goldman Sachs in the firm’s Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities (FICC) division.
