Daiwa Capital Markets hires new ECM head

Jonathan Orders becomes head of equity capital markets for Asia ex-Japan at the Japanese firm.

Daiwa Capital Markets announced yesterday that it has hired Jonathan Orders for a newly created position as head of equity capital markets (ECM) for the Asia-Pacific region (ex-Japan). The appointment is effective immediately. 

Based in Hong Kong, Orders will report to Kazuyoshi Mizukoshi, head of investment banking for Asia-Pacific, and to Sumio Otsuka, executive officer and co-head of global investment banking.

Orders, who joins as a managing director, has almost 30 years of global investment banking experience and an extensive track record in ECM origination, both in Asia and Europe. He joins Daiwa from boutique corporate finance advisory firm Asia Pacific Advisers where he was a managing director.  
He was formerly a managing director in the ECM division at Standard Chartered Bank Hong Kong and, prior to that, he spent five years with HSBC in Hong Kong, originally as head of ECM for Asia-Pacific. He has also held senior positions in a similar capacity at NM Rothschild, Credit Suisse First Boston and Baring Brothers.
“Jonathan’s experience and track record will greatly benefit Daiwa as we continue to build our investment banking capabilities in the region,” said Mizukoshi in a press release.
Daiwa noted that the appointment of Orders follows a series of senior hires made by its investment banking division earlier this month for the financial institutions group (FIG) in Asia-Pacific region (ex-Japan). These hires include Thomas Jackamo as head of the group, Michael Perry as head of execution and Jeff Walker as head of insurance.
“These hires underscore our commitment to become one of the top investment banks in Asia. I am confident that the newly expanded team will help accelerate the implementation of our Asian growth strategy,” said Otsuka.
