Bill King is joining Citadel Investment Group, a global financial institution focused on alternative investment strategies and services, as senior managing director and head of securitized products. He previously served as global co-head of securitized products at JPMorgan. "This is an unprecedented time in the securitization markets, and we are committed to putting our firm in the very best position to identify opportunities today and in the future," says Ken Griffin, president and CEO of Citadel.
King joined JPMorgan in 2000, where he served as head of pass through trading, head of mortgage trading, and co-head of U.S. securitized products before being promoted to his role as global co-head of securitized products. His trading responsibilities included mortgages, asset-backed securities, collateralized-debt obligations and commercial mortgage-backed securities. Prior to that, Mr. King traded mortgages at Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette and Merrill Lynch.
