Nomura International plans to hire two or three asset-backed securities specialists for its securitization team in London. Tariq Rafique, head of securitization and asset finance in London, said the new recruits will structure cash and synthetic securitizations. He added that the new hires will report to him and he aims to have them on board by the end of the quarter.
These hires will represent the end of its four-month long hiring spree, in which it has hired seven pros to build up its team to 10. Rafique said it is making the additional hires because it is beginning to see increased business, which he attributes to the build up of its team.
