Mario Carrasco to lead Cabrera Capital Markets’ Public Finance Investment Banking Team

Chicago — Cabrera Capital Markets (“Cabrera”)—a leading minority-owned and operated investment bank and institutional brokerage firm—announces that Mario Carrasco has joined the firm as Managing Director and Head of Public Finance Investment Banking and will lead all of Cabrera’s public finance operations from the firm’s San Antonio office.

In this role, Mario will be responsible for growing Cabrera’s national presence. Over the past three years, Cabrera’s municipal finance team has expanded considerably across California and Illinois. In terms of the next three years, Martin Cabrera, CEO and Founder, notes, “we have laid out an ambitious national plan and I believe Mario’s experience and proven leadership will play an integral role in helping the firm achieve those goals. Mario is joining the firm at a critical time in its history as we continue to expand and increase our capacity and capabilities to serve our clients and offer them solutions.”

Mario is an industry veteran with 19 years of experience, most recently leading Citigroup’s Public Finance group in the Southwest region to becoming the largest negotiated municipal underwriter in Texas from 2018 to 2020. “I am highly optimistic that Cabrera Capital Markets’ already well-known public finance group, in combination with the firm’s strong municipal trading and sales platform, will expand its footprint not only in Texas but nationally as well,” said Mario Carrasco. “The firm’s growth trajectory has been very impressive and is one of the many reasons I decided to join. Cabrera’s recent explosion of growth is a story I am excited to tell, and I am eager to work with a stellar public finance, underwriting, and municipal sales and trading team.”

Mario is the former Chairman and past member of the Municipal Advisory Council of Texas, and he received his Bachelor of Science degree from the St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas.
