Natalia Corfield joined Standard Bank Group Ltd. as a corporate-credit analyst covering emerging markets.
Corfield, who will be based in New York and report to Johannesburg, South Africa-based chief economist and global head of research Goolam Ballim, was at ING Groep NV for two years until December when the company cut its group focusing on Latin America dollar debt. She had previously worked in a similar position at Dresdner Kleinwort in London.
At Standard Bank, Corfield will cover Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe and African credits.
“Natalia is prolific in her analyses, very well regarded in the market and exudes a professional authority that will add further stature to the Standard Bank Research team,” Ballim wrote in an e-mail.
