Exotix Capital, a global developing markets investment bank, has made three new appointments to further expand its global presence and strengthen coverage of key international growth markets.

Nirgunan Tiruchelvam joins as Head of Consumer Sector Equity Research, based in Dubai; Nicholas Taylor joins as Head of MENA & SSA Fixed Income Trading, based in London; and Kiti Pantskhava joins as Senior Credit Analyst, CEEMEA, based in London.

Tiruchelvam will be relocating from Singapore, where he has been Vice President at BTIG. 

He has previously served in senior equities leadership and consumer sector equity research roles at Religare, Standard Chartered and RBS/ABN Amro Asia. 

He brings a strong thematic perspective on the consumer sector that he will be applying as Exotix strengthens its core coverage of Africa and South Asia. 

At the same time, his experience and network in ASEAN will help to expand Exotix’s footprint eastwards.

Taylor brings extensive experience in the CEEMEA region, having previously been Head of CEEMEA Trading at Cantor Fitzgerald, and CEEMEA Credit Trader at Deutsche Bank. 

He also spent seven years as Head of CEEMEA & Latam Credit Trading for BNP Paribas.

Pantskhava focuses on Eastern Europe including Russia and Ukraine, along with the Middle East and Africa corporate credit. 

She was formerly Gazprombank Asset Management’s Executive Director for Fixed Income Research where she covered Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, South Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and prior to that was an analyst at Nomura, VTB, Standard Bank and Uralsib.

Duncan Wales, CEO of Exotix, said: “These new appointments help Exotix to strengthen our presence across the Sub-Saharan Africa, ASEAN and emerging Europe regions in particular, ensuring we are deepening coverage in the fastest growing economies around the globe. These key hires will be important additions to the expanding international team, which has seen a number of new hires this year across Fixed Income, Equities and technology development.”
