Apex further strengthens Capital Markets Offering
2020 has been a milestone year for Apex’s Capital Markets offering with new hires and product launches
Global, December 16, 2020 — Apex Group Ltd. (“Apex” or “The Group”), a global financial services provider, has strengthened its Capital Markets business during the course of the year through the hiring of a number of senior and credible individuals. The business supports clients planning and executing a broad cross-section of capital markets transactions to facilitate growth, respond to regulatory change or manage risk.
Apex began 2020 with a statement of intent with the appointment of Paul Wilden from TMF Group as Global Head of Capital Markets to lead the development of the Group’s offering in the sector. Wilden was previously Global Head of Capital Markets at TMF Group and spent two decades at Standard Chartered Bank, BNY Mellon and Barclays, respectively in senior global and regional (APAC and EMEA) roles in the Capital Markets space.
Wilden’s hire has been supported by senior business development appointments of Jackie Rodgers and Colin Radcliffe in London and Mike Rodriguez in New York as Directors of Capital Markets Sales reporting to Cornelia Wallner, Global Head of Capital Markets Sales. These new hires bring extensive and current knowledge of a broad cross section of Capital Markets Services; from SPV administration on Structured and Project Finance to Agency services on both Corporate Bonds and Syndicated and Bilateral Loans, alongside Escrow and other related products.
Apex provides a bespoke and comprehensive range of operational, accounting and administration services to support conventional or complex structured debt capital markets, escrow and loan market transactions from initial set up to maturity. Product developments in 2020 include:
- An expanded and refreshed Escrow offering to better serve clients across Apex’s global footprint;
- Debt Restructuring services and solutions as a result of the current environment and continuing challenges;
- An expansion of Loan Agency services in support of existing Loan Administration capabilities.
These developments underline the Group’s continued commitment to sustainable growth and the continued drive toward expanding and evolving its single-source solution capabilities.
Paul Wilden, Global Head of Capital Markets at Apex Group comments: “Despite a challenging year for global markets, we have continued to pursue our growth strategy and are proud to have enhanced and expanded our Capital Markets offering. We have identified various opportunities to grow our Capital Markets services supported by the Group’s existing position as a leading provider of services to debt fund clients, together with private equity and real estate clients who benefit from our Loan Agency, SPV administration and Escrow services respectively. As we move into 2021, we are excited by the prospect of leveraging our existing experience to provide clients with a more comprehensive end to end solution as our business evolves and responds to the market and client needs.”
