BNP Paribas Securities Services Hires Head of Sales to Complement the Launch of 
Issuing and Paying Agent Services in the US 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 --   BNP Paribas Securities
Services announces the appointment of Jamie Pratt as Head of Sales
Americas for Debt Market Services. The hire follows the launch of the
bank's issuing and paying agent services to US money market issuers
last year.

bank's structured finance department in New York. Prior to this, he
was a securitisation banker at Deutsche Bank in London.

services sales. The US money market is a key source of short-term
funding for US and non-US issuers. It is a high volume market with
short deadlines creating significant operational challenges for
issuers," said Claudine Gallagher, regional manager North America at
BNP Paribas Securities Services on the launch. "Our strong
understanding of the local market infrastructure and its regulatory
environment combined with our market-leading technology platform
dedicated to money market processing will help our customers increase
efficiency and reduce operational risk," she added.
