Mizuho Securities said it is done hiring people on the structuring side and will begin to bulk up its sales team. The firm said it might make additions in structured credit products sales, which includes CLOs and SIVs. The hires will be based in New York, though no expected time frame was given on when the additions would be made. "Whenever we find the right ones," Mizuho said.
SunTrust Robinson Humphrey hired several prominent senior-level executives for its debt capital markets team. These new additions include Jeff Hare as managing director in asset securitization origination and Jeff Barnes as managing director and part of the total return swap team. Both Hare and Barnes join from Banc of America Securities' global structured finance unit in Charlotte, N.C.
