Elizabeth Moore has joined Rivada Networks as Head of Capital Markets.
Moore has more than 20 years of global leveraged finance experience having worked in New York, London and Hong Kong. In her role, she will lead the design and placement of structured debt solutions to finance the rollout of Rivada’s shared-spectrum networks, which allows 4G and future 5G wireless-network capacity to be bought and sold on its patented Open Access Wireless Market.
Rivada will fund the rollout of their Open Access Wireless Networks, in whole or part, through financial solutions designed in light of Rivada’s ability to secure them against the right to sell capacity on those networks in a wholesale market.
“Rivada is changing the way wireless networks are built and accessed. It’s only fitting that Elizabeth will help us change the way they are financed as well,” says Rivada CEO Declan Ganley.
In her two decades in investment banking, Moore has held positions with JPMorgan, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers. She was most recently with Nomura, where she was Head of Leveraged Finance Capital Markets for EMEA. Over the course of her career, she has originated, structured and marketed a broad range of complex financings for companies across a wide variety of industries, responsible for placing more than $120 billion.
“I’m thrilled with the opportunity to work at Rivada Networks,” Moore says, “whose technology allows us to bring to the market innovative solutions that are a perfect complement to the company’s game-changing innovations in wireless networking. It’s very clear that bandwidth will be the world’s next great commodity and Rivada is going to make that happen.”
As Rivada moves to deploy its technology, it has worked with the financial industry to capitalize on the collateral properties of wireless bandwidth. “It is widely recognized, that more than the electronics or bent metal that go into a network, the bandwidth it produces is the real source of value,” Ganley says. Moore adds: “This puts Rivada in an excellent position to design and structure attractive solutions for the institutional investor market, which is always looking for new and non-correlated sources of income.”
