Dominic Powell, head of the collateralized debt obligation investment solutions group at Henderson Global Investors in London, has left the company. He could not be reached for comment, but Richard Acworth, spokesman for Henderson, confirmed Powell left last month to join JPMorgan. The nature of his new role, including whether it would be on the buy- or sell-side, could not be determined. Both Stefania Sigroelli, spokeswoman for JPMorgan, and Emma Collins, spokeswoman for JPMorgan Asset Management, declined comment.
Powell leaves Henderson after four years growing its CDO business. Last year, he oversaw the launch of a combined equity and credit structuring team (DW, 6/20/04). Most recently he focused on client marketing. Acworth noted Powell will be replaced, but was unable to say if the hire would be internal or external.
