Capital markets round up: Levy returns; joins Prytania
Prytania Investment Advisors has hired Paul Levy as a partner based in London. Levy is an experienced structured credit banker, having worked at Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and Merrill Lynch – where he was head of exotic credit structuring. Levy will focus primarily on assisting Prytania’s clients in managing the risk in their structured finance and credit portfolios, some of which are managed directly by Prytania. Prytania’s advisory business has attracted substantially greater client inquiry since Lehman Brothers defaulted in September 2008. Its financial institutional clients are looking at better understanding and managing retained credit risk, and Levy will help facilitate that given his expertise – especially in investment-grade synthetic credit.
