Houlihan Lokey, a global investment bank, has hired Mario Manna as a managing director in its capital markets group.

Manna joins the investment bank with over two decades of experience in the financial services industry. Most recently, he served as head of private placements for RBC Capital Markets. Prior to RBC, Manna was a managing director at Pareto Securities and at BNP Paribas. The addition of Manna looks to strengthen the firm’s capital placement capabilities for its corporate and financial-sponsor-backed clients focused on sectors that are real-asset intensive.

“The addition of Mario to our team will contribute significantly to the depth of our coverage and differentiated expertise within the capital markets group,” says Anthony Martin, global co-head of Houlihan Lokey’s capital markets group. “His strong track record of success and broad array of experience, specifically with respect to securitizations and rated-debt capital solutions in the infrastructure, power, energy, and transportation sectors, will meaningfully bolster our capabilities and allow us to continue providing our clients with the innovative solutions they require. We look forward to Mario’s success at the firm.”
