Dominique Mielle's Biography

Dominique Mielle is a Franco-American investor and expert in the areas of distressed investing and bankruptcy. Working as one of a select group of female portfolio managers in the 1990s, she documented her experiences in Damsel in Distressed. The book was a huge hit - witty, insightful and fun - and also advocated for more women in the financial industry.

Her memoir draws on over twenty years of industry experience. Mielle was a partner and senior portfolio manager at Canyon Capital, a hedge fund with $25 billion AUM. At Canyon, Mielle focused on several sectors including transportation, consumer products and municipal finance. She specialised in corporate bond securitisations and was a pivotal figure in the firm’s collateralised loan obligation endeavours.

Mielle's ability to deal with the intricacies of complex bankruptcies marked her out as a key figure in the field. She was renowned for delivering strategic financial solutions. PG&E relied upon this skillset during her tenure as a director and audit committee chair for its 18 month bankruptcy process. Mielle continues to advise corporations and sits on the boards of 4 public companies.

Dominique Mielle contributes to the financial discourse in the public sphere for both lay and specialist audiences.
