Former Goldman head quant moves to Morgan Stanley

Prior to joining Morgan Stanley, Canabarro was a mainstay of Goldman Sachs’ quant team. He initially joined Goldman’s fixed-income derivatives research group in 1995, where he reported to Bob Litzenberger, who as firmwide risk manager at Goldman Sachs was subsequently awarded Risk’s Risk manager of the year 2001.

In 1999, Canabarro moved to Goldman’s credit risk group, where he reported jointly to the heads of credit and market risk, Craig Broderick and Litzenberger, respectively.

Canabarro, who left Goldman at the end of last month, told RiskNews his initial responsibilities at Morgan Stanley will involve the quantitative modelling of counterparty risks in over-the-counter derivatives products. He will report to Joe Langsam, head of fixed-income quantitative modelling.
