Only a month after the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS)announced a number of new hires into its US-based securitization strategy division, the firm made another addition, this time tapping former Bank of America(BofA) (BAC) talent. Paul Jablansky, at BofA from 2003 to 2008, is now managing director, also in the firm's strategy departments, for "senior consumer" asset-backed securities (ABS) and non-agency residential operations. He works under the Global Banking & Markets (GBM) division in the Americas for RBS and reports to the head of mortgage-backed, commercial and ABS strategy, Brian Lancaster. He is based in Stamford, Connecticut. At BofA, Jablansky ran a multi-million-dollar portfolio of MBS and ABS, as well as a variety of other roles. Most recently, he served as chief investment officer at 400 Capital Management. Jablansky started his career at Salomon Brothers in the early 1980s and later held fixed income research and strategy positions at Goldman Sachs (GS) and Citigroup (C). "The MBS, CMBS and ABS markets are full of opportunity but complex," said Lancaster on RBS hiring industry veterans into his department, "this is where we come in to provide our clients with the extensive expertise and actionable, market driven ideas they need to achieve their financial goals.” Write to Jacob Gaffney.
