Aberdeen head of structured solutions departs

De Roeck considering Libor discontinuation consultancy launch


Robert de Roeck has left Aberdeen Standard Investments, where he was head of structured solutions and a member of the Bank of England working group on sterling risk-free reference rates. Having served the firm for a decade, he most recently led the teams responsible for structuring complex cross-asset investment solutions for pension and insurance clients.

De Roeck is considering launching his own Libor discontinuation consultancy, offering front-office practitioner’s capabilities. He handed over the firm’s ongoing Libor discontinuation project on his departure in December.

“Unlike the major market changes we have observed over the past decade, the evolution of the new RFR ecosystem is being driven primarily by markets, rather than by regulators. Libor transition projects need leadership – or at least clear guidance – from those with deep experience in cross-asset management or market execution,” says de Roeck.

Aberdeen will not name a direct replacement, due to its restructuring of the multi-asset solutions team, Risk.net understands.

De Roeck joined Standard Life Investments in 2010. The company later merged with Aberdeen Asset Management. He previously held derivative structuring positions at Lloyds, JP Morgan and ABN Amro.
