Natixis has hired David Daniels as head of its financial sponsor coverage in the Americas. 

He will report locally to Stéphane About, CEO of the Americas platform, and globally to Imed Ben Romdhane, global head of financial sponsor coverage, the company said on Friday. 

Daniels joins from Nomura Securities International, where he was a managing director in the financial sponsors group. He has extensive experience working with private equity firms across an array of advisory and capital markets transactions, and has nearly 30 years of financial market experience. Prior to Nomura, he was co-head of the financial sponsor coverage group at RBC Capital Markets and head of middle market financial sponsor coverage at Wachovia Securities. Earlier in his career, he also held senior roles in the financial sponsor coverage groups at Deutsche Bank Alex. Brown and UBS Capital.

“Dave brings tremendous industry experience and leadership skills to our platform,” said About in a statement. “Combined with our recent acquisition of investment banking advisory firm Peter J. Solomon, we continue to strengthen our full-service investment banking platform for our corporate and private equity clients in the U.S.”

Headquartered in Paris, Natixis is the international corporate, investment, insurance and financial services arm of France’s Groupe BPCE, the nation’s second-largest banking group. The company’s asset management arm managed $874.5 billion as of June 30, 2016.
