Deutsche Bank is looking to add a staff member in London as part of its push to structure hybrid products to hedge credit or bankruptcy exposure via equity and credit derivatives, according to a firm official.
The firm recently hired two traders in New York, who will look at the correlation between equity and credit derivatives, according to Boaz Weinstein, managing director and head of U.S. credit derivatives in New York. Jeremy Benkiewicz, v.p. and trader at Société Générale, has joined in a similar position and George Pan, v.p. in credit derivatives research at JPMorgan, has joined as a director and trader.
