TD Securities has hired Tom Mykityshyn, a veteran mortgage-backed securities salesman from Deutsche Bank Securities, to head up a new structured product sales effort for its New York office, according Harold Holappa, TD Securities' global head of structured products. Mykityshyn did not return phone calls seeking comment. Holappa said Mykityshyn will head a team of three and will be actively seeking additional hires for the group. He said the group will try and expand the bank's distribution of Canadian asset-backed securities to U.S. institutional investors, as well as selling collateralized debt obligations and credit-, equity- and interest-rate derivatives.
Mykityshyn reported to Oliver Wriedt at Deutsche Bank and had been there for three years, according to a former colleague. Wriedt did not return calls.
