Janney further expanded its fixed-income team by hiring Robbie Goffin as managing director.
Goffin reports to recently hired managing director of Credit Sales Michael Stiuso and focuses on spearheading the growth of Janney’s credit business in secondary trading and new-issue origination.
With close to 20 years of industry experience, Goffin held different senior positions at Mizuho, StormHarbour, KBC Financial Products, and the role of Credit Agricole’s head of private placement sales. Goffin is an honors graduate of Princeton University.
In 2010, Janney’s fixed-income side of the business saw the addition of several traders in government agency bonds and non-agency MBS. Last year also saw the launch of Janney’s whole-loan initiative.
“Robbie’s expertise in high yield, event-driven securities and debt private placements will advance Janney’s position in our credit business by creating opportunities and access to the debt capital markets for our clients on the banking side,” said Steve Genyk, managing director and head of fixed income.
Genyk added: “As we build out this segment of our business, our goal is to establish a strong foundation for future growth, while remaining agile and able to capitalize on opportunities presented. A game-changing hire such as Robbie will continue to differentiate our platform from that of many of our competitors.”
