Keith Chan joined Mizuho Securities USA as an executive director, strategic credit group, based in Hong Kong.
The appointment of Chan, who identifies structured securities potentially of interest to U.S. clients as well as funding opportunities for Asian corporates, represents an expansion of the firm’s existing platform.
Chan reports to Randy Li in New York, who heads the strategic credit group for Mizuho Securities USA, and Donal Galvin in Hong Kong, who is head of sales and trading for Mizuho Securities Asia. Chan joined Mizuho Securities USA in December 2011 from mCAPITAL, an investment manager specializing in distressed opportunities and restructurings, headed by Mark Devonshire, formerly of Merrill Lynch. – Abby Latour
