Gramercy hires Latin American expert Gustavo Ferraro

Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - Gramercy, a dedicated emerging markets investment manager, today announced the appointment of Gustavo Ferraro to the new position of Managing Director and Head of Latin American Markets. Ferraro previously served as a Managing Director with Barclays Capital where he was co-­‐ Head of Global Finance for Latin America, a group that was responsible for Debt and Equity Capital Markets as well as leveraged finance for the region. He also led a team that covered the firm’s largest Latin American corporate and sovereign clients, focusing on debt capital markets and liability management.

In his new role, Ferraro will be responsible for implementing debt restructurings in Latin America on behalf of Gramercy; sourcing, originating and executing transactions in the region; and building new capacity for the distribution of Gramercy’s strategies throughout the Latin American sovereign and corporate plan markets. He will also focus on expanding Gramercy’s private equity investments in the technology, media and telecom sectors of Latin America, as well as attracting and managing talent in the region.

“We’ve known Gustavo well for many years. Most recently we worked closely with him as he played a key role in Argentina’s 2010 reverse inquiry debt restructuring, which Gramercy conceived, led and anchored as well as the country’s previous debt restructuring in 2005,” said Robert Koenigsberger, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer at Gramercy.

He added, “Latin America represents one of the best opportunity sets in emerging markets today and with Gustavo’s strong knowledge of the region we believe we are well positioned to take advantage of those investment opportunities across our platform.” “Gramercy is a recognized leader in emerging markets investing, particularly in Latin America,” said Ferraro. “I am thrilled to be joining a team that is well respected and has a deep investment process that allows for a collaborative approach. I look forward to sharing my ideas and working with my new colleagues in order to get the best results for our investors.”

Prior to Barclays Capital, Ferraro worked for Salomon Smith Barney’s Investment Bank where he was head of TMT (Technology, Media & Telecom) for Latin America. Ferraro also covered Argentina and Chile for Lehman Brothers Investment Banking as the head of their office in Buenos Aires. Before Lehman Brothers, he spent time at Citibank in Sao Paulo, Brazil where he was responsible for asset trading and for the coverage of Brazilian and multinational clients. Ferraro holds an MBA in Finance from Claremont Graduate School. He also has a degree of Licenciado en Economia from Universidad Catolica Argentina in Buenos Aires.
