Mizuho Americas has announced the addition of Traci Creange to its fixed income team as Managing Director and Head of US Floating Rate Note (FRN) Credit Trading. In her new role, Creange will be responsible for trading all maturities and sectors across the floating rate note complex for Mizuho’s growing US client base.
“Mizuho continues to invest in its fixed income trading platform and credit products remain a critical area of focus for the firm,” said Thomas Hartnett, Head of Fixed Income Sales & Trading for Mizuho Americas. “Traci’s strong product expertise and network of client relationships significantly enhances our capability in FRNs and further demonstrates our commitment to this important market segment.”
Creange comes to Mizuho with nearly fifteen years of senior credit trading experience at firms including Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Jefferies and Bear Stearns. She most recently served as head FRN trader for Deutsche Bank before rejoining Mizuho, having previously served as an Executive Director in investment grade credit trading from 2011-2014.
Her firms have been ranked the number one counterparties for FRNs by MarketAxess seven out of the last eight years (2009-2014, 2016). She was also listed in Greenwich Associates’ “Most Helpful Traders in Investment Grade Credit" in 2014. Creange holds a BA from Columbia University and an MBA in Finance from NYU.
Creange’s appointment builds on several recent additions to Mizuho’s growing US fixed income sales and trading platform across derivatives, credit and securitized products.
