Ines Noe has joined Nomura’s debt capital markets team, taking on responsibility for high-grade and sovereign debt origination for Asia ex-Japan. She assumed the newly created role early this month.
Noe, who is based in Hong Kong and is a managing director at the firm, is returning to a client-facing role. Her previous role at Nomura was as a senior adviser to the CEO in Asia-Pacific. Prior to that, she spent 18 months as co-head of the integration for Asia-Pacific following Nomura’s acquisition of Lehman Brothers.
In her new role, she adds seniority to the firm’s investment-grade and sovereign bond origination effort and has plans to expand the team soon.
Noe reports directly to Graham Conran, Nomura’s head of debt origination for Asia ex-Japan. She first joined Nomura back in 2006 as head of debt capital markets for Asia ex-Japan after she had had a five-and-half-year break to start a family.
Earlier in her career she worked with UBS for 10 years. The last role she held at the Swiss firm was head of debt origination for Asia-Pacific in 2001.
Nomura has been involved in a number of investment grade bonds in the past couple of years, including issues for Singapore's PSA and Woori Bank in 2009 and a bond for Hyundai Motors in April 2010.
