KBRA Mourns the Passing of Scott Durant
11 Jan 2024 | New York
KBRA is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our colleague, Scott Durant, who died on January 8. Scott was a key member of our Financial Institutions ratings team and an important contributor to the group’s success since his arrival at KBRA in 2016. Located in our Maryland office, Scott, a Senior Director, was the ultimate team player, always willing to assist other analysts and share his tremendous insights. Scott brought sharp analytical insight and a rigorous approach to every financial institution that he rated; he was a dedicated professional and always generous with his knowledge.
Given his analytical prowess and intellectual curiosity, Scott led coverage of technology-focused institutions. He helped drive diversification across nonbank financial institutions by initiating coverage of securities firms and consumer finance companies, among others. Outside of work, Scott was devoted to his family and many friends. His warm and engaging personality will be treasured by all who knew him.
“We are heartbroken to learn of Scott’s passing and our thoughts are with Scott’s family during this difficult time,” said Joe Scott, Head of the Financial Institutions Group at KBRA. “Scott was an invaluable member of our team, an exemplary analyst, and outstanding individual. He will be sorely missed.”
A celebration of life will take place at Middletown Volunteer Fire Company Community Activity Center (1 Fireman’s Lane, Middletown, Maryland) on January 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Catoctin Creek Park and Nature Center in his honor.
