Ko has extensive experience in credit trading in Asia. Since 1999, Ko has held various positions at Morgan Stanley in Hong Kong and London, and in 2010 joined Citibank’s Hong Kong operations.
Ko will be based in Hong Kong and will report directly to Ugo Calcagnini, Global Head of Credit Trading at VTB Capital and regionally to Damian Chunilal, CEO Asia for VTB Capital.
Chunilal said, 'VTB Capital continues to actively develop its business in Asia, and I am delighted that Bryan Ko has joined our credit trading team. He adds to our team of top class professionals. Since the opening of VTB Capital’s Hong Kong office in 2011, we have started to build a very strong fixed income credit trading in the Asian-Pacific market, which will allow the firm to substantially grow its fixed income business in the region'.
Last year VTB Capital hired Lewis Wong as Head of Illiquid Credit Trading, Asia and Daren Wong as Head of Asia High Yield Trading.
