ANDREW PALMER BSc (Hons) Wales,MEc UWA MBA Columbia.
Visiting Fellow (Debt Capital Markets)
Following a short stint in Commercial Mortgages at JPMorgan in New York, Andrew became the first dedicated Credit Derivatives salesperson in the market at a time when a Credit Default Swap was negotiated line by line. He ran the sales force for the product in North America as the product developed and was central to most industry initiatives in the development of the market. Andrew then took on responsibility for structured credit as the synthetic market became more important and eventually took over both businesses globally, building the largest and most successful business on the street with market share always above 30%. He moved to London in 2004 in the same capacity as much of the activity had migrated to that location. In 2005 Andrew left JPMorgan to become CEO of Scotia Capital Europe and Head of Capital Markets for Europe and Asia before retiring and relocating to Australia in 2009.
