RBC Capital Markets named Charles Smith as a managing director in its U.S. leveraged finance investment banking group and Mark Goldstein as a managing director in its U.S. financial sponsors investment banking group.
Smith will be based in New York and will focus on the consumer & retail and industrial sectors. He reports to Jim Wolfe, head of U.S. leveraged finance investment banking.
Goldstein will also be based in New York and will report to Blair Fleming, head of U.S. investment banking.
The U.S. leveraged finance and the financial sponsor groups at RBC work closely together, as private equity firms are big drivers of leverage loan and high yield bond issuance to fund their acquisitions of portfolio companies.
Goldstein joins the firm from JP Morgan, where he most recently served as head of restructuring and liability management for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Smith joins from Loughlin Meghji, where he served as head of corporate finance. Prior to that, he was a managing director in the syndicated and leverage finance group at JP Morgan.
