NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 06, 2017) - Mizuho Americas today announced the addition of Traci Creange to its fixed income team as Managing Director and Head of US Floating Rate Note (FRN) Credit Trading. In her new role, Creange will be responsible for trading all maturities and sectors across the floating rate note complex for Mizuho's growing US client base.

"Mizuho continues to invest in its fixed income trading platform and credit products remain a critical area of focus for the firm," said Thomas Hartnett, Head of Fixed Income Sales & Trading for Mizuho Americas. "Traci's strong product expertise and network of client relationships significantly enhances our capability in FRNs and further demonstrates our commitment to this important market segment."

Creange comes to Mizuho with nearly fifteen years of senior credit trading experience at firms including Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Jefferies and Bear Stearns.
