United First Partners appoints Pascal Marionneau as global head of credit solutions

RELATED TOPICS​

United First Partners (UFP) has appointed Pascal Marionneau as global head of the credit solutions business line.

He will be a managing partner and a member of the executive board.
 
Marionneau will run United First Partners Capital (UFP Capital), the newly incorporated Swiss entity of the UFP Group.
 
The credit solutions business will focus on credit assets held on the balance sheets of financial institutions. In addition to sourcing and distribution, the business will also encompass securitisation and advisory services.
 
Marionneau's previous role was global head of credit and executive board member at Kepler Cheuvreux. Prior to this, Marionneau was a senior trading and risk advisor to the global markets' board at Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking. 
 
Marionneau was promoted in the aftermath of the Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy to achieve special missions including the creation of the bad bank and the management of the non-core assets. His experience covers credit, FX and fixed income derivatives, cash and complex structured products.
 
Marionneau says: "I am thrilled to be joining a dynamic, entrepreneurial and well-respected firm and am confident we can become a prominent figure in the credit business. The first step will be to strengthen our global reach, which will involve hiring of up to 20 professionals within the next two years. The Portuguese market is a core focus for United First Partners.”
 
United First Partners co-CEOs Stėphane Mardel and Michael Hadjedj say: "The creation of our credit solutions business and the opening of our new Swiss office are key steps in UFP's diversification into financial advisory services across all asset classes. Pascal's substantial experience in investment banking and brokerage will be of great value in continuing to grow UFP's offering to its clients.”
