MUFG has today announced the appointment of Antoine Baudron and Fabianna Del Canto as Co-Heads of Capital Markets for EMEA. Antoine and Fabianna are responsible for leading capital markets teams in the region that advise clients on accessing primary markets for their financing needs and interfacing with leading institutional investors across a broad range of asset classes, including bonds, loans, equities and structured finance.
The MUFG Capital Markets business has enjoyed a strong start to 2023, playing a leading role in multiple European corporate debt transactions and opening and leading the market for European hybrid transactions.*
Antoine joined MUFG in 1998 as an Executive Director in Debt Capital Markets (“DCM") and later became Head of France, Iberia and Switzerland DCM before running EMEA Capital Markets in the EU. Antoine is also Head of MUFG Securities, France and is based in Paris.
Fabianna has 20 years' leadership experience in capital markets gained from a variety of syndicate and origination positions in Europe and the U.S. She joined MUFG in March 2022 as Head of UK and non-EU Capital Markets from Agora Digital Capital Markets, where she was Head of Business Development. She started her career at Goldman Sachs before moving to Barclays, where she led leveraged loan and high yield syndicate activities in EMEA.
Antoine and Fabianna report internationally to Rajesh Kapadia, International Head of Capital Markets in New York, and regionally to Alex Pierre, Interim International Business Head Sales & Trading and Phil Roberts, Head of Global Corporate and Investment Banking for EMEA.
Raj Kapadia, International Head of Capital Markets said:
"The appointment of Antoine and Fabianna as Co-Heads brings together their complementary skills, and adds further depth to our capital markets leadership.
"Fabianna's background in syndicate and risk-taking complements Antoine's experience in origination allowing us to position MUFG to capture a bigger share of the market and grow the franchise in EMEA. I have no doubt Antoine and Fabianna will together improve the way we serve our clients internationally.
"In 2023, MUFG's EMEA team is off to a flying start with 14 active roles in European primary debt deals.
"We see many advantages to our differentiated approach that allows us to service clients' financing needs and engage with institutional investors across a wide range of asset classes from investment grade to high yield debt, equities and syndication of structured finance deals all within a single team."
