JERSEY CITY, NJ (June 7, 2022) — GLAS is pleased to welcome Anny Hansen to the firm as Vice President for its New York-based transaction management team. Her arrival marks a key addition to an already robust team that serves as a leading independent provider of institutional debt administration services in the U.S. market.
Hansen brings two decades of international corporate banking experience during which she managed a wide scope of middle-office responsibilities across several loan products, including large syndicated corporate loans for Latin America and project finance transactions. Over the course of her career in financial services, Hansen has held roles at significant financial institutions including MUFG Bank, DNB, BNP Paribas, Dexia Credit Local and Barclays Capital.
Most recently, Hansen served as an officer in the credit middle office team at Mizuho Americas, where she worked extensively with loan documentation and reporting for the bank’s Latin America and project finance teams.
“I am so excited to join GLAS as I embark on this entrepreneurial phase of my career,” Hansen said. “As alternative lenders continue to play a larger role in the debt financing ecosystem, independent service providers like GLAS have an opportunity to shape the market, especially in U.S. I look forward to applying my years of experience and skills to assisting GLAS clients as they execute deals in the Americas.”
She joins a quickly expanding US TMG team, which has doubled its headcount in 2022. On multi-jurisdictional transactions, the TMG team works seamlessly with its counterparts across the GLAS global network to provide the highest quality client service, essential flexibility and a high degree of responsiveness to deal parties.
Hansen’s expertise includes Banking Operations, Loan Documentation and Administration, Client Onboarding & KYC as well as Operational & Enterprise Risk Management. She is also fluent in Spanish, which will enable her to better service Latin American clients.
“Anny is an important addition to our core business in our American office,” said Mia Drennan, Co-Chair and President at GLAS. “Her background in syndicated lending—particularly for large LATAM and project finance deals—provides an immediate value-add to our team. I expect that her leadership on our American transaction management team will pay immediate dividends to clients executing complex deals across different jurisdictions.”
Global Loan Agency Services Limited was established in 2011 as an independent provider of institutional debt administration services.

It offers a wide range of debt administration services developed specifically for the debt market, covering Private Credit, Leveraged Finance, Capital Markets and Bankruptcy. GLAS is recognised as the premier independent, non-creditor, conflict-free provider of loan agency and bond trustee services, with in excess of $130 billion of assets under administration on a daily basis.
