Triet M. Nguyen has been appointed as New Oak’s managing director in its corporate and municipal credit solutions group.

“Triet brings a wealth of fundamental municipal and corporate credit expertise to the firm and will be a real driver of our expansion in these key areas going forward,” said NewOak Chief Executive Officer Ron D’Vari.

With 32 years in the industry, Nguyen will be responsible for helping the team build out its capabilities and assisting clients in fundamental credit assessment, surveillance and portfolio monitoring.

“NewOak stands at the intersection of two exciting trends in fixed-income research and risk management: the increasing application of fundamentally driven corporate and municipal bond research, modeling and forecasting techniques; and the application of technology to greatly enhance credit and surveillance efforts for institutional portfolios. I look forward to helping the NewOak team develop and implement these pioneering solutions for our clients,” said Nguyen.

Prior to his new position, Nguyen served as senior vice president at B.C. Ziegler, where he traded tax-exempt high-yield and taxable municipal bonds.
