KNG expands to US on growing Emerging Markets business

  • 22nd February 2024


Bloomberg recently broke the news about our expansion into the United States, with the opening of an office in New York City in March.

Co-managing partner, Andrea Podesta discussed how the opening of a US office was the natural next step for KNG Securities as we have been working with an increasing number of US based institutions.

In 2023 we doubled our headcount to 40 people, including the hires of Omar Ghalloudi as Head of Emerging Markets and Fernando Ortega as Head of Emerging Market Sales. With the new US office opening, we expect to further expand the KNG team.

In the article Andrea pointed out that with the US being the biggest global investment market, a bigger presence in the US adds extra liquidity for investors that we work with on both sides of the Atlantic. With our strong track record in Latin American bonds, interest amongst US investors has been very strong, providing a very strong foundation for our expansion.
