Meet our people
Kira Eaton – Commodities and Global Markets
“I started as an intern on the Fixed Income and Structured Finance desk within Fixed Income and Currencies in the Commodities and Global Markets group. I am now a full-time analyst with the team where we focus on lending warehouse lines, originating, structuring and distributing securitisations of mainly secured debt on a public and private basis. We also look at non-senior corporate debt and infrastructure/green debt opportunities.
“I work predominantly on the distribution side, responsible for distributing UK, European and Australian Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities and other ABS trades to investors. The team specialises in bringing first time issuers to the capital markets, and I have had the opportunity to work closely on a couple of these inaugural trades including Domivest’s and Belmont Green’s new issues.
“I have had access to clients early on and have helped to build out the client base. Given the dynamic nature of our team, there is a lot of variety to my role including working closely with the structurers and assisting with the day-to-day running of the warehouse lines. The flat structure at Macquarie also means that I learn from, and work directly with, very senior members of the team.
“I really enjoy the client interaction. I spend most days catching up with investors over the phone or at meetings to find out about their current investments and whether anything in our pipeline fits with their mandates. I cover a wide range of investors over different locations which also means I get to travel quite a bit for roadshow meetings and for conferences, and this is an aspect that I also really enjoy.”
