Barclays Capital has appointed Alan Hirakawa as managing director and head of leveraged finance, Asia Pacific. He is responsible for the firm’s relationships with private equity clients in the region.

Based in Hong Kong, Hirakawa will report jointly to Darcy Lai, Barclays Capital’s head of investment banking and debt capital markets in Asia and to John Kelting, head of European leveraged finance, based in London. Hirakawa will replace Alan Turner who returns to London later this month to join the European Corporate Leveraged Finance team.

Hirakawa previously worked at Citigroup where he served as managing director, Asian leveraged finance. 

“Alan has an enviable track record in leveraged finance, having structured and closed transactions in each of Asia’s major leveraged finance markets,” said Lai. “He is well known and has worked very successfully with a number of Barclays Capital’s major clients.”
