Reynolds Partners appointed Stuart Macfarlane, previously from Deutsche Bank, to lead its new structured finance section effective immediately.
Stuart joined Bankers Trust in 1999 to set up the structured transactions group presence in Asia based in Japan. He started working for Deutsche Bank after it took over Bankers Trust in 1999, when his group merged into the structured capital markets business of Deutsche. In 2001, Stuart returned to London and became the COO of the structured capital markets business. He negotiated and executed structured finance transactions in Asia, Europe, North America and in the U.K. across all asset classes, ranging from €50 million to more than €3 billion.
“Reynolds Partners is positioning itself to act as a source of high added-value ideas and transaction execution expertise to our clients," said John Reynolds, chief executive officer of Reynolds Partners. "The addition of Stuart extends our expertise into structured tax, bringing further value to existing and new clients.”
“We will be offering tailored tax advice as an integral part of the existing advisory work mandated to Reynolds, as well as offering bespoke structured financing and investment transactions to third-party investors,” Macfarlane said.
Reynolds Partners is an example of a specialist investment bank that is expanding during a turbulent time for the financial sector.
In May, it appointed Tim Hammond, former head of investments and joint ventures at British Airways, to lead its new transport section.
