GMAC hopes to keep the same funding mix - 30% institutional debt, 18% retail and 52% securitization.

If there's one woman in the debt markets that bankers have to keep sweet, it's Cynthia Ranzilla, vice-president of US funding and global markets at GMAC. She is responsible for dishing out mandates to banks in every asset class and market where GMAC funds its $275 billion asset base and it's something she takes very seriously. "It's a continuing challenge to manage the relationships so that meaningful business can be provided to the banks while awarding that business based on each firm's attributes," she says.
