What do you do at Mizuho?

I work on the origination side of the Municipal Markets Group, focusing on interest rate hedging solutions and financing products for our investor and borrower client base. 

How is Mizuho different from other places where you've worked?

Mizuho is one the largest banking institutions in Japan, but it is still growing its presence and client base in the U.S. This creates an entrepreneurial atmosphere where we have the ability to directly contribute to the bank’s reputation in the region through every transaction that we do.

What’s one thing you've learned while at Mizuho or in the industry? 

Details matter.

What do you do for fun? 

Cooking, trying out new restaurants and bars in the city, snowboarding, and surfing

What’s a particularly proud moment you’ve had here? 

Our team closed on a refinancing for a large transaction in early 2021. It was Mizuho’s first transaction with this industry-leading sponsor, and the client chose us over other banks because we were able to customize the transaction to meet their needs, rather than offer a “one-size-fits-all” solution. I was proud that we were able to offer a compelling solution during a time of uncertainty in the market. 

What surprised you about Mizuho?

Mizuho has done a great job of hiring best-in-class people for all roles throughout the bank, and everyone that I work with is always willing to help. Our group is a relatively new team here at Mizuho, and yet we were able to get up and running quickly, due to the support and efforts from internal stakeholders.
