Mediobanca hires experienced credit trader to build out loan franchise

22 August 2018

Mediobanca has appointed ex-Deutsche Bank credit trader Joel Bensoor as head of loan trading. In this role, he is tasked with building and strengthening Mediobanca’s loan franchise.


Creditflux understands this will involve emerging markets loan trading, but also a broader array of loans and related products, potentially including secondary CLO trading.


Based in London, Bensoor will report to Alessandro Moro, head of credit, rate and alternatives trading.


Bensoor is an experienced loan trader and investment manager with a speciality in emerging markets. His most recent job was as investment executive for financial institutions debt and trade finance at CDC Group.


Previously, he was an investment analyst from September 2016 at Avery Row Capital Partners, where he joined to launch and manage an African credit fund.
