08 Sep 2014

TFG Asset Management, the asset management platform of Tetragon Financial Group Limited (“TFG”), announced today that Scott Marsh has joined to lead the development of a global mining finance business.

Mr. Marsh joins TFG Asset Management from TrailStone Group, where he was the global head of origination metals / mining.  Prior to TrailStone, Mr. Marsh was a banker with Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.  His last role as a banker was as Managing Director and Global Head of Mining Finance within Deutsche Bank’s global commodities business from April 2009 to April 2013. During the first 10 years of his career, Mr. Marsh worked as a mining and exploration geologist in Australia, Scandinavia and the former Soviet Union.  Mr. Marsh has direct experience in Archaean greenstone gold, nickel, Proterozoic slate belt terrains, porphyry copper and epithermal systems.

Paddy Dear, CEO of TFG Asset Management, said, “Scott’s career spans a rare combination of investment banking and industry expertise and will add to TFG Asset Management’s expertise in mining.  There is a dearth of financing options for miners currently, and we believe TFG Asset Management will be able to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns while creating innovative financing solutions for worthy mining projects and companies globally.” About TFG and TFG Asset Management:
