RBS Securities (RBS) appointed Paul Jablansky as managing director, senior consumer ABS and non-agency residential strategist within its global banking and markets (GBM) division in the Americas.
The addition of Jablansky happens as RBS expands its U.S. MBS, CMBS and ABS strategy team. He will be based in Stamford, CT and report to Brian Lancaster, managing director and head of MBS, CMBS and ABS strategy.
Jablansky will lead the team’s consumer ABS and non-agency MBS strategy efforts. His appointment complements the non-agency residential strategy role that Desmond Macauley, managing director, non-agency residential strategy has helped to spearhead over the past five years.
Before joining RBS, Jablansky was a co-founder, co-managing partner, and chief investment officer of 400 Capital Management, an investment management company that focused on ABS, MBS and CMBS relative and absolute value strategies. From 2003 to 2008, he held senior positions at Bank of America, including the roles of managing director, head of the structured portfolios group and global head of principal finance where he managed a multi-billion dollar portfolio of mortgage and ABS assets. He started his career at Salomon Brothers in the early 1980s and later held fixed income research and strategy positions at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup.
The firm’s MBS, CMBS and ABS strategy team in the U.S. has grown steadily over the past seven months and now has seven strategists. Last month, RBS announced the additions of Greg Reiter, managing director, agency residential security strategy and Jeana Curro, vice president, agency MBS/CMOs.
“We continue to take a very thoughtful and deliberate approach to expanding our comprehensive MBS, CMBS and ABS strategy team with the highest-caliber market professionals," Lancaster said. "The MBS, CMBS and ABS markets are full of opportunity but complex; this is where we come in to provide our clients with the extensive expertise and actionable, market driven ideas they need to achieve their financial goals.”
