ING EXPANDING DCM BUSINESS TO AMERICAS – The Dutch bank ING is going to build out their Debt Capital Markets (DCM) business in the Americas. The expansion comes as the bank took a broad view of its global capital markets and the bank was partially motivated by the sheer size of the U.S. market. The U.S. market is nearly three times as large as European bond markets, according to the European Commission’s Analysis. In time, ING could potentially expand their DCM business in order to cover high-yield bonds and “reverse Yankees”, or debt issued by US companies into European or Asian markets. The new office will provide the base needed to cover Canadian and Latin American as well. @Cefas Van Den Tol will be appointed as Head of Global Capital Markets for the Americas starting June 1st. #SpartanInternational
