Bryan Ko has joined VTB Capital as head of investment grade trading, Asia.

Ko joins VTB Capital from Citi’s Hong Kong offices, before which he worked for Morgan Stanley in both Hong Kong and London.
He will again be based in Hong Kong and will report to Ugo Calcagnini, global head of credit trading. Regionally, he will report to Damian Chunilal, VTB’s Asian CEO.

Ko’s appointment follows those of Lewis Wong (head of illiquid credit trading Asia) and Daren Wong (head of Asia high yield trading) last year, to complete the formation of VTB’s credit trading team in Asia Pacific.

Damian Chunilal says: “I am delighted that Bryan Ko has joined our credit trading team. He adds to our team of top class professionals. Since the opening of VTB Capital’s Hong Kong office in 2011, we have started to build a very strong fixed income credit trading in the Asia Pacific market, which will allow the firm to substantially grow its fixed income business in the region.”
