Jefferies Group announced the hiring of three senior managing directors in its fixed-income sales and trading platform.
Perrin Arturi joins as head of agency passthrough trading, Thomas Dolan as head of whole loan trading and sales, both commercial and residential, and Chander Gupta as head of European ABS and MBS trading.
Arturi will be responsible for the origination and expansion of the firm's agency securities trading and Dolan will be responsible for the sales and trading of whole loan mortgages. Gupta will be responsible for servicing the needs of European customers on U.S. mortgage products and creating a franchise in European ABS and MBS.
These new positions represent a further strengthening of Jefferies' overall sales and trading platform, specifically in MBS and ABS, and more broadly in overall fixed income. The firm has added more than 40 fixed-income senior professionals in the past six months.
