Macquarie Capital builds out investment banking business in Europe

Macquarie Capital, the corporate advisory, capital markets and principal investment arm of Macquarie Group (Macquarie), has appointed Michael Magliana as Co-Head of the UK for its AEA Group and Camelia Robu as Head of Leveraged Finance in EMEA, based in London.

Magliana brings significant senior expertise to Macquarie Capital’s existing presence across the region, with over 20 years of experience, mainly with JP Morgan and most recently Moelis and Jefferies. He will join Macquarie in September this year and will be responsible for deepening Macquarie Capital’s client relationships across core industry sectors and product on a pan European basis working alongside newly appointed Co-Head of the UK division of AEA, Jonny Allison.
Magliana will also have additional responsibility for further strengthening Macquarie Capital’s advisory, lending and principal capabilities across core sectors including financial institutions, consumer, industrials, healthcare, TMT, services and technology – supported by recently appointed Simon Russell, Magnus Scaddan and Fokke Eijsink.
“Michael brings extensive experience to Macquarie Capital in the UK and across Europe,” says Michael Silverton, Head of Macquarie Capital’s AEA Group. “His corporate and financial sponsor relationships will bring more opportunities to our clients across the region.”
Robu, who will be based in London, has over 15 years of experience, mainly at Deutsche Bank. She joins from HSBC where she was a Managing Director in its leveraged and acquisition finance division. Her addition builds on Macquarie Capital’s highly successful leveraged finance franchise in the US and demonstrates Macquarie Capital’s commitment to grow this business in Europe. Robu is responsible for the origination and execution of sub-investment grade loan and bond transactions for private equity sponsors and corporates across sectors, working closely with Macquarie Capital’s US leveraged Finance team in New York.
Both Robu and Magliana report to Rainer Langel, European Head of Macquarie Capital’s AEA Group, who says: “I am delighted to welcome Camelia to Macquarie and Michael in due course. Together they represent a highly strategic strengthening of Macquarie Capital’s presence across Europe and represent the quality that we are able to attract to this platform. Their addition to our existing franchise will ensure that we are best placed to deliver an outstanding service to clients on a pan-European basis and collaborate successfully with colleagues in the US and Asia to deliver for our global clients.”
