An Australian with decades of experience in global financial markets, Ms. Gribble is based in Sydney. She reports to U.K.-based Managing Director and Joint Head of Origination Suparna Dar.

“We are excited that Melissa has joined Assured Guaranty to lead our initiatives in the Australian market,” said Ms. Dar. “Melissa has held senior banking and capital markets positions for many years, serving an international client base, and she truly brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Assured Guaranty.”

Ms. Gribble will have responsibility for Assured Guaranty’s origination activities in the Australian market, where the company’s financial guarantees have helped provide financing for the Port of Brisbane, Sydney Airport and other projects over the years. Ms. Gribble will focus on sourcing new opportunities for Assured Guaranty’s financial guarantee business in the infrastructure, utilities and structured finance markets.

“With its nearly 40-year track record of reliability and financial strength, Assured Guaranty has significant untapped potential in the Australian financial markets. Our financial guarantees protect investors and can improve the cost-efficiency of many kinds of financings. I look forward to bringing Assured Guaranty’s impressive story to my industry colleagues in my home market,” said Ms. Gribble.

Ms. Gribble has extensive experience in debt and financial markets, capital raising and institutional banking, as well as in the strategic responsibilities of a chief executive tasked with building an operation from the ground up.
