Merrill Lynch Investment Management builds structured products team

Merrill Lynch Investment Management has lured Fernando Guerrero, a collateralised debt obligation (CDO) specialist, away from ABN Amro to head its planned structured products team in New York.

Merrill Lynch sees the structured products market as an increasingly promising source of income for itself and its clients, said Robert Doll, president and chief investment officer of Merrill Lynch Investment Management (MLIM).

Guerrero's first task will be to create a platform to support CDO distribution, CDO structuring and management of CDO risk for MLIM customers. He will report to Brian Fullerton, MLIM's chief investment officer in the Americas.

Guerrero joined ABN Amro in 2002 as head of global CDO operations. He was previously at TD Securities and Donaldson, Lufkin, Jenrette, and established CDO businesses at both companies.
