Japan-based investment bank Nomura has named Gary Cottle as its new head of fixed income for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Based in London, Cottle will report to Steve Ashley, senior managing director and global head of fixed income, and John Phizackerley, Nomura’s CEO for EMEA.
Cottle has over twenty years of experience, and was most recently worked for Royal Bank of Scotland’s investment bank as global head of sales for all corporate and government related clients.
In this role, he was also responsible for global structuring across RBS’s markets businesses and served as chairman of the UK bank’s emerging markets business. His career has also included roles at Morgan Stanley and Barclays Capital.
“The EMEA region is a fundamental part of our global fixed income franchise, demonstrating consistent profitability in the face of challenging market conditions,” said Ashley. “In this key role, Gary will work closely with our global trading and sales heads to expand our client-focused franchise and ensure we fully capture east to west flows.”
