"We have a clear growth strategy for our Fixed Income business," said Jenkins. "Andre brings strong execution and risk management skills to the role, in addition to his Emerging Markets experience and track record building a highly successful business. Under his leadership, with a renewed focus on swift implementation, I am confident we can achieve the ambitious step change in market position we are striving for."

Esteves will remain responsible for Latin America, continuing to leverage his client expertise and market knowledge in support of the firm's growth agenda across the region.

At Banco Pactual, Esteves held senior positions including Head of Fixed Income and was the Managing Partner and Member of the Executive Committee. He holds a BSc in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
