Equinox Global has appointed Simon Philpin as senior credit analyst in London.

He joins the trade credit insurer from Atradius, where he has been positioned for the last 11 years, most recently as senior underwriter in the special risks team.

He previously worked as an analyst for Deloitte and Toyota Financial Services.

Mike Holley, chief executive officer of Equinox Global comments on the hire: “We are delighted to welcome Simon to the Equinox Global team. He has a wealth of experience and expertise in credit analysis and will be invaluable in helping us grow our business. Bank lending to businesses continues to be constrained, leading many companies to look to trade credit to help them grow. Equinox Global is benefiting from this ongoing demand as clients look to a provider able to deliver a professional and responsive trade credit offering.”
