RBS Securities hired Perrin Arturi as a managing director on its agency passthough trading desk.
The new hire will be responsible for trading 15-year MBS. Arturi, who will be based in Stamford, CT, will report to Brian Song, head of agency passthrough trading,
Arturi has over 20 years of experience trading a broad array of agency passthrough mortgage securities. He joins RBS Securities from UBS where he was most recently the head of agency passthrough mortgage trading.
Before UBS, Arturi specialized in trading agency passthrough securities and various mortgage products at firms such as Bear Stearns and Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.
Arturi's hiring builds on the recent addition of Matt Shiel from Bank of America Merrill Lynch as well as Christopher Miller’s newly expanded role in trading specified pools, and a component of the firm’s continued initiatives over the past year to strategically enhance and expand its U.S. agency passthrough mortgage trading business.
The desk trades a full range of agency passthrough cash instruments as well as mortgage options and constant maturity mortgages.
“The addition of Perrin to our desk now provides us with a complete team of seasoned agency pass-thru traders under the leadership of Brian Song,” said David Cannon, co-head of ABS, MBS and CMBS trading for RBS Securities. “These individuals are a critical part of our mission to be among our clients’ top counterparties across the full spectrum of agency pass-thru products. We are looking forward to leveraging Perrin’s expertise as we continue to grow our mortgage platform.”
