London-based frontier market investment bank Exotix Capital has appointed Dean Tyler as global head of fixed income, effective immediately.
Tyler (pictured), who joins Exotix from Liquidity Finance in London where he was managing director, will work alongside Guy Frost (head of fixed income in London) and Ian Tweedley (head of fixed income sales in the New York office).
Tyler brings experience from leadership positions across the EM universe at firms including ING Bank, VTB Capital and F&C Asset Management. In his recent roles, he was responsible for Global Emerging Markets Sales, managing distribution platforms based in London, New York, Dubai, Moscow, Singapore and Hong Kong. Prior to that, he worked as managing director and head of Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities (FICC) Sales at China’s Haitong Securities. Formerly, he was managing director and head of International FICC Sales at Sberbank CIB, the investment banking arm of Russia’s largest bank.
Tyler’s appointment follows a number of senior hires in recent months as Exotix widens its expertise in core markets while expands its global reach, including that of Matthew Pearson, who was appointed as Exotix’s global head of Equities in October, and Paul Domjan as head of a new Research, Analytics & Data division in August.
CEO Duncan Wales said: “Dean’s proven experience across the full scope of emerging markets banking, both on the buy- and sell-side, gives him a truly unique perspective that I’m confident will add exceptional value for our clients and help to further enhance our significant capabilities in debt capital markets.”
Dean Tyler, added: “I am thrilled to join Exotix at this exciting time in its development. I am sure the high calibre talent that Exotix has recently attracted will help to ensure that the firm stays at the vanguard of both Frontier and Emerging Markets, and I look forward to working with a team of such distinction.”
