Mr. Hartnett will serve as the group’s Senior Managing Director and Head of Fixed Income Sales and Trading – in this capacity, his mandate is to oversee and steer Mizuho’s US execution and distribution capabilities for clients across all fixed income asset classes. This includes rates, investment grade and high-yield credit, emerging markets, and securitized products.
Moreover, Mr. Hartnett will also help foster product initiatives critical to further enhancing Mizuho’s growing US business, whilst reporting to Jerry Rizzieri, President and CEO of Mizuho Securities USA. Prior to landing at Mizuho, Mr. Hartnett held several senior level roles at Deutsche Bank, primarily across the fixed income space – he also dealt with assets such as derivatives, cash rate products, municipal capital markets, and corporate bonds.
