Paul Vos and Andrew Bellis, a pair of collateralized debt obligation structurers who recently resigned from Credit Suisse First Boston, are both believed to be heading to Merrill Lynch in similar positions. Vincent Dahinden, managing director in CDO structuring at Merrill in London, confirmed Bellis' hire but declined comment on Vos. Neither Bellis nor Vos could be reached for comment.
Dahinden said Bellis will concentrate on cash deals, but the firm runs an integrated team and he will also work on synthetic deals if demand dictates.
CSFB's plans for replacing Vos and Bellis could not be determined by press time.
