Standard Chartered Bank has hired Heinz Noeding as global head of structured export finance, replacing Charles Carlson who has been appointed chief executive officer (CEO) of Standard Chartered Bank, Libya.
Based in New York, Noeding will report globally to James Courtenay, global head of project and export finance who is based in London, and Mohammed Grimeh, head of capital markets for the Americas.
Noeding will engage with the US Eximbank, Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and other multilateral agencies based in the US, to structure project and export financings for clients across the bank’s network in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Additionally, he will finance exports from Standard Chartered’s US-based clients to clients in Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Noeding has a long career across many areas of structured finance, including leveraged finance, high yield, merger and acquisition (M&A) and loan asset management in the US, Europe and Asia. He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in developing complex structured solutions for corporate and institutional clients, most recently as president of Aozora Investment Management. Prior to that, he was a managing director in corporate finance at CIBC World Markets.
