Washington, DC – DATE – Treliant has appointed David E. Wagner as a Senior Advisor in its Global Markets service area, to assist clients during the current transition in interest rate benchmarks from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) to alternative benchmarks. David has been a fixed income market practitioner for 29 years, in roles ranging from underwriting and investment banking to structuring, marketing, and trading complex derivatives.

Prior to joining Treliant, David held several positions at the Royal Bank of Scotland, including on the U.S. management team, the Board of RBS Securities Inc., the Board of Tradeweb, and as the RBS representative to the Federal Reserve’s Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC). As an RBS Markets Manager, he executed strategic transformations including conversion from a U.S. branch to a U.S. representative office; hybrid outsourcing and offshoring of securities processing technology and operations; conversions of local risk engines to global integration; and upgrading of machine-based electronic trading systems.

“The global financial system’s move away from the LIBOR interest rate benchmark to a new standard will have far-reaching impact, affecting mortgage banks, credit card issuers, corporate lenders, traders in interest rate derivatives and futures, and others,” said Treliant Principal Graham A.D. Broyd. “As we expand our Global Markets service area, David will provide unparalleled knowledge and experience in LIBOR risk management and other pressing issues in global banking and trading.”

“Treliant quickly got ahead of the LIBOR benchmark issue, helping its clients prepare for what is a complex and critical transition that presents significant risk,” Wagner said. “I look forward to taking up this challenge with Treliant’s clients.”
