Debt market round-up: Goldman puts a new Edge on SSA
Christopher Egerton-Warburton is the new head of origination in the sovereign, supranational and agency (SSA) business at Goldman Sachs. “Edge” has been at Goldman Sachs for 13 years and has been associated with landmark trades such as the UK and German dollar deals. Of late he has focused on more strategic issues such as the creation of the International Finance Facility for Immunization (IFFIm).
He replaces George Richardson who, after 11 years at Goldman, is going to the World Bank. He takes over the day-to-day funding operation at the borrower. “Of course we are disappointed to be losing George,” says James Garvey, managing director of FICC, “but Chris knows this sector inside out. He has worked on many strategic sovereign mandates for us in the past and has been the primary banker on the upcoming IFFIm transaction. While we are very sorry to see George leave, we are happy that he has found a good home at the World Bank.”
