Cala joins the bank from Gen Re Securities in Tokyo, where he was responsible for the structured credit trading business for Asia. Prior to that, he worked in the structured derivatives businesses of Rabobank, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers.
At DrKW, Cala will work closely with another recent hire, Hideyuki Kudo. The ex-Merrill Lynch banker was also appointed director and senior credit structurer at DrKW.
Both men will be responsible for credit products, such as credit-linked notes and collateralised debt obligations, in Asia.
