London, 16 September 2009
Macquarie Capital today announced the appointment of John Dwyer as a Managing Director, further expanding its Equity Capital Markets (ECM) team in Europe.
Most recently Executive Director in Goldman Sachs’ EMEA ECM team, John brings extensive experience of origination and execution of equity and equity linked transactions. Following a long period of focusing purely on the UK equity capital markets, John also has an extensive track record on a broad range of geographies including Russia, Central & Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
John joins Macquarie’s global ECM team of more than 100 executives across the UK and Europe, the US, Australia, Asia and South Africa. Working closely with Macquarie Securities Group, clients benefit from the combination of Macquarie Capital’s ECM structuring, underwriting, equity raising and advisory expertise and the outstanding research and global distribution capabilities of Macquarie Securities’ institutional stock broking business.
“John’s appointment is another important step in the strengthening of our European ECM capabilities. His experience complements the appointment of Antony Isaacs as head of the European ECM team, and the ongoing development of Macquarie’s global ECM platform” said Graeme Conway, Head of Macquarie Capital’s European Advisory team.
“Our recent role as Joint Global Coordinator for Rio Tinto’s US$15.2bn rights issue, the largest non-financial rights issue ever, exemplifies Macquarie’s ability to leverage fully integrated ECM teams across time zones and jurisdictions. The European team is integral to this global offering,” said Graeme Conway.
