Standard Chartered creates securitisation capability

Getting into the securitisation business is part of Standard Chartered’s push to “enhance the range of products it offers clients", said a spokesperson for the bank.

Standard Chartered hired Marty Essenburg from Bank of America at the beginning of the year as its London-based global head of securitisation. He will also head fixed income for Africa and the Middle East.

Under Essenburg’s leadership, Standard Chartered has built up a four- to five-strong securitisation team in London and a unit in Hong Kong, which currently comprises three people led by the head of Asian securitisation, who reports to Essenburg.

The bank is aiming to offer a complete range of securitisations, from cash asset-backed securities to synthetic collateralised debt obligations.

Standard Chartered insiders said the bank may make additional appointments and could set up teams elsewhere in the world.
