Keller will trade cash and credit default swaps and report to Masaya Okoshi, managing director and head of investment grade credit trading in the Americas.
Keller will be based in New York.
He joins from Jefferies where he spent a year as a senior vice president in investment grade cash trading. Prior to Jefferies, Keller spent nine years at Merrill Lynch, most recently as a director in investment grade trading.
“We are delighted to welcome Bob to our team, and confident he will meet the high standards our clients have come to expect from us,” says Ray Costa, managing director and co-head of flow credit trading in North America. “It is especially important to have a deep bench of seasoned traders to guide clients though challenging markets.”
