Rothschild Global Advisory: Kevin Bush joins Rothschild & Co as Senior Adviser of Debt Advisory in Australia
Rothschild Global Advisory, part of the Rothschild & Co group, is expanding its Financing Advisory business by appointing Sydney-based Kevin Bush as a Senior Adviser and a member of its Debt Advisory team in Australia. This newly created role will significantly broaden Rothschild Australia's clients' access to and relationships with global debt markets
Kevin joins Rothschild from UBS AG, where he was Head of Financing Solutions Australia Pacific (including Asia). During his 20 year tenure at UBS AG, Kevin also worked as Head of Australia/NZ Leveraged and Acquisition Finance.
Mr Bush's appointment broadens Rothschild's unique global capital markets advisory capabilities by expanding the provision of independent and unconflicted advice to clients across both equity and debt markets. This announcement follows last year's appointment of David Acton as a Senior Adviser in Rothschild Australia's Equity Advisory team and the establishment of Rothschild's Investor Advisory service.
As part of Mr Bush's appointment, Rothschild Australia intends to increase its focus on providing solutions to borrowers and lenders in situations where borrowers' capital structures require restructuring. Rothschild is one of the leading restructuring advisory firms globally, with over US$100 billion announced transactions during 2017 across 50 situations.
Commenting on the appointment, Rothschild Australia Co-Heads Marshall Baillieu and Gareth Cope said, “We are delighted to be welcoming Kevin Bush to Rothschild as a Senior Adviser and as part of our Debt Advisory team. This newly created role will improve our independent capital markets advisory capabilities and allow us to provide unconflicted advice across the breadth of client balance sheets.”
Paul Shew, Head of Debt Advisory and Restructuring Australia, added, “Kevin's deep experience with developing and implementing financing solutions will now be deployed to the benefit of Rothschild's clients. We strongly believe that clients see immense value in the independent advisory model and Kevin will be a great addition to our team as we build out our debt advisory service.”
