“I have been working with Mr. Schmidt on various transactions since 2012 when the Bank approached the international debt capital markets for the first time. On each occasion Mr. Schmidt demonstrated a great ability to “read” the market and subsequently deliver unqualified success to DBM and other Mongolian clients. This, together with creative thinking and the strong presentation and negotiation skills of Mr. Schmidt, were instrumental to the success of DBM’s stand-alone return to the global capital markets.”

“The number of awards won for transactions [Florian] advised us on, and the recent success of a capital markets turnaround within only two years speak for themselves, demonstrating the high quality results he delivered to us, all of which are fully acknowledged by our shareholders, management and deal teams, but also by third party market participants and observers. Florian’s role was instrumental in the successes of all our capital markets deals in 2012, 2017 and 2019.”
