Senior industry practitioners join LCM Partners from Standard & Poor’s


London – LCM Partners (LCM), is pleased to announce that it has hired two new Directors from S&P to join its consulting team. Ilaria Vignozzi and Nadya Aleshina have both started at LCM this month.

Ilaria is a senior analyst with 11 years’ experience in credit markets. She spent the last eight years covering securitisation and structured finance markets at Standard and Poor’s (S&P) Ratings Services. Prior to that, Ilaria worked for three years in the Financial Institutions Group working on financial institutions’ ratings. She has an extensive knowledge of ABS, RMBS and Covered Bonds and other complex structured finance products across European jurisdictions.

Nadya was a Director within the Structured Finance team at S&P for 7 years, where she focused on European residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) transactions. Prior to this, Nadya was a business analyst with Barclays Global Investors in London and has held several research roles within the research centre of Unicef in Milan, the EBRD and the World Bank in Moscow.

Farid Shavaksha, Director at LCM, commented:

After winning the tender for the ECB’s Loan Level Initiative back in December 2013, the quantum of work within our consulting group has grown substantially. I knew that in order to take our consulting business to the next stage we needed senior talent. I have worked with both Nadya and Ilaria at S&P, I know their strengths and experience and I was absolutely delighted when they each decided to join our team here at LCM.

Paul Burdell, CEO at LCM, added:

I am thrilled that we were able to recruit two such high calibre candidates and we warmly welcome Ilaria and Nadya to our team. Attracting this sort of talent is testimony to our team, our work and the general appeal of the LCM brand and especially the direction in which the firm is moving today.
