The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has chosen Mesirow as a Primary Discount Note dealer, the independent, employee-owned financial services company announced.
Mesirow Institutional Sales and Trading is prepared to significantly contribute to the IFC’s finance programme thanks to its big trading desks spread out across the U.S. IFC is the biggest international development organisation that only works with the private sector to support sustainable growth in developing nations.
According to George Barbar, Senior Managing Director, Mesirow Institutional Sales and Trading, “The IFC’s Global Discount Note Program has served as an additional funding and liquidity management tool, supporting IFC’s trade finance and supply chain initiatives as they play a catalytic role at the forefront of impact investing.” We feel privileged to be a part of this exclusive group of dealers.
According to IFC’s cash management manager, Amit Jain, “The strength of Mesirow’s investor outreach to U.S. public institutions, with its over $150 billion in annual institutional sales and trading activity, will help us grow our client base. The market for American public institutions will continue to be a key area of concentration for IFC’s funding programme.”
The company intends to increase the number of employees in the area over the next two to three years, first concentrating on Capital Markets, Wealth Management, and Investment Advisory services, including corporate and governmental clients. The objective is to expand across the larger Southeast region in the intermediate to long term, creating offices where they can best serve customers and doing so both organically and through opportunistic, complementary lift-ins and bolt-on acquisitions.
This new partnership reflects Mesirow’s commitment to broadening the company’s platform. Mesirow, which has its global headquarters in Chicago and offices in 17 cities, including London and Hong Kong, is currently expanding its presence in Florida and the Southeast by increasing consumer awareness of the Mesirow brand, hiring more Mesirow professionals in this market, strengthening its philanthropic commitment, and strengthening its ties to the local business community.
Mesirow continues to have adequate money for future expansion and looks forward to making the crucial strategic investments required to provide services to more clients throughout the world.
