BofA Nabs UBS Hedge Funds Director

Bank of America has hired Meri Miller, director in the global hedge funds group at UBS Warburg in New York, as a senior marketer in its global leverage group, a subsection of its global derivatives products group. At UBS, Miller reported to Gary Kaufman, head of the rates and foreign exchange group in New York. Kaufman said UBS would look to replace Miller, declining further comment.

Miller will start after Labor Day and report to Sandy Sloane, head of the global leverage group. Sloane's department deals with fixed-income derivatives, including asset swaps, interest-rate swaps and exotics. Miller is filling a new position created to give the group a global presence. BofA already has senior marketers stationed in Chicago, Tokyo and London.

Sloane said Miller is a perfect fit for the position because she worked as an options trader during the first part of her career and then moved on to become a derivatives marketer. Miller was on vacation and could not be reached for comment.

    Supras learn to change in changing world

    Multilateral development banks find themselves swept up in two parallel waves of change. As bond issuers, they are having to deftly navigate capital markets that are still emerging from the end of years of historically low rates, being forced to call upon all their experience and sophistication as they fund across multiple markets. At the same time, with the pressure on to fill the huge gap in global development finance, these institutions are being asked to work out how to better use or expand their balance sheets and lend more — all while maintaining their precious credit ratings. GlobalCapital gathered some of the leading supranational issuers at a roundtable in New York City in May to discuss how best to deal with the challenges of this changing world.
