'Adrian will play an integral role in expanding and bolstering our investment banking practice in Europe', stated Paul Reynolds, President and CEO of Canaccord Financial Inc. 'His extensive corporate relationships and demonstrated success in both Advisory and Corporate Broking services make him very well suited for this important leadership position'.

'Adrian has advised on many notable transactions during his career. His relationship-based approach and recent mid-market focus are extremely complementary to Canaccord Genuity’s growing client base and client-centred model', noted de Rosnay. 'We’re in the process of implementing many important changes to better serve our clients through an integrated investment banking approach, and Adrian will be charged with leading this strategy'.

Haxby was most recently a Managing Director at UBS Investment Bank where he was Head of UK Mid Market Group, a combined advisory and corporate broking team responsible for relationships with a broad range of FTSE 250 corporate clients. His previous roles at UBS Investment Bank included Joint Head, European Equity Capital Markets and European Head, General Industrials Sector team.

Haxby has over 27 years of investment banking experience, with assignments in London, Paris and Frankfurt. He is an ACA and has a BA in Classics & Modern Languages from St. Edmund Hall, Oxford.

Haxby’s addition is a key component of Canaccord Genuity’s strategy to further integrate its Advisory and Corporate Broking practices, ensuring its clients receive the full value of Canaccord Genuity’s full-service platform.

This appointment is the most recent of several world-class additions Canaccord Genuity has made over the last three months to grow its capital markets leadership team. In September Canaccord welcomed de Rosnay as CEO of its UK and European operations and Peter O’Malley as CEO of its Asia operations. The company also recently announced the appointment of Phil Evershed as Global Head of Investment Banking and Steve Buell as Global Head of Research.
