Peeyush Pallav, DBS’s head of structured debt solutions for South Asia, the South Pacific and EMEA, has moved to Natixis. Pallav joined the French bank earlier this month in a senior APAC structured credit syndication and origination role.

He was at DBS for more than eight years and helped the firm establish its new structured finance unit, according to his online profile. He was responsible for delivering funding solutions across different asset categories, including real estate, consumer credit, trade, loans and funds. Pallav’s departure will be felt by DBS, because during his time at the bank his structured finance transactions won awards from IFR Global, IFR Asia, and The Asset.

Prior to DBS, Pallav was head of structured finance for Fitch Ratings in India in 2007/2008 and was “instrumental in setting up the structured finance team”, according to his LinkedIn profile. He moved to Fitch in Singapore in April 2008, as a director for non-Japan Asia structured finance, and focused on areas including consumer finance and global infrastructure.

Pallav, who is an executive director in his new job, has now relocated from Singapore to Hong Kong to be closer to the action at Natixis. The bank uses Hong Kong as its Asian headquarters to serve regional clients across structured financing, capital markets, investment banking and trade finance. Hong Kong also houses its main trading floor and support functions for the region.

Pallav completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Management from the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore in 2002. He then worked briefly for Standard Chartered in 2003/2004, before joining Fitch for an initial two-year stint. Pallav was at HSBC between 2006 and 2007 in a ratings and capital/financing solutions role.
