In his new role, Mr. Shore will be tasked with the financial group’s FIG unit, which has seen a flurry of hires in recent months in a bid to bolster the group. He will be replacing AJ Davidson, who held a similar role in the EMEA region, having parted ways with the bank earlier this year.

Mr. Shore joins Mizuho from HSBC, which he worked for over fifteen years. During his tenure, he focused on FIG coverage in Europe, whilst maintaining an emphasis on debt capital markets (DCM) for the lender. Additionally, prior to HSBC, he held senior level roles at CSFP as its Vice President of Derivatives Structuring and Marketing to UK Corporates, among other positions, dating back to 1990, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.

The move is the latest hire at Mizuho’s global financial web of units and subsidiaries, which over the past couple months has seen the launch of Mizuho Americas. The group recently hired Thomas Hartnett as its Head of Fixed Income Sales and Trading, part of a string of strategic additions following a July launch.
