*THANK YOU* £2k raised at MTN drinks & charity night!

Over 80 MTN professionals from 35 institutions joined us last week for our market drinks and charity poker evening.

Aside from catching up with colleagues and making new connections, with your help we managed to raise just over £2,000 for two children’s charities doing fantastic work: CATS Foundation and Free to Be Kids.

Both charities focus on meaningful support of children in need and unlike some major charities, small amounts make a BIG difference. Your donation directly impacts these children so every bit really does help.

You can still CLICK HERE to donate!

David Morland – MUFG
James Riley – Lloyds
Ben Terreaux – Deutsche Bank
Malek Benfetima – Jefferies

Lucia Denton – Natwest

What a night! The 14th Global MTN Showcase & Awards


What a night!

A record turnout, £6,000 raised for children’s charities and even the voice of Apple’s Siri all helped mtn-i’s 14th Annual MTN Awards night on Thursday go off with some extra fizz!

The Republic of Poland, the EBRD, EDF, ESM, KfW, the IFC and Qatar National Bank were among the illustrious list of borrowers recognised among over 40 institutions represented by nearly 200 attendees.

Jon Briggs (aka Siri) announced the winners while Nick Martland’s band played them onto the stage – the lucky ones got Bond themes!

Inspirational showcase!

During the lunch and Showcase that preceded the awards dinner, market strategists unpacked the various possible outcomes of Trump, Brexit and the upcoming European elections on markets…

The mtn-i editorial team picked out a dozen of the private debt market’s hot spots poised for further growth in 2017!

Nine issuers and dealers pitched their credits and trade ideas…

…and to wrap things up the market’s leading private market dealers, issuers and investors considered the future of private debt markets.

£6,000 for CATS and Free To Be Kids!

The generous donation of auction items and bidders on the night raised £6,000 for two children’s charities.

CATs, the charity founded by ex-Dresdner MTN Trader Daniel Lewi who was there on the night, supports families and children affected by Tay-Sachs disease.

We were also honoured to be joined by Free To be Kids founder Rachel Nichols. Free to be Kids provides residential therapeutic adventures and activities for vulnerable children.


As a start-up ourselves (now 15 years old) mtn-i is proud to be supporting innovative charity start-ups and give them long-term support.

Since our award dinners started we’ve raised over £80,000 for vulnerable and sick children.
