RBS Securities hires Jablanksy

Brian Lancaster (formerly at Wachovia as head of structured products, and CIO there at the end) has added Paul Jablansky (historically a research analyst, but more on the portfolio/principal side at BOA, and most recently on the buyside at 400Capital) to the RBS strategy team.

In a version of the press release it notes their focus on strategists versus researchers, and their hires of Lancaster and now Jablansky reinforce that - these aren't guys who have been in an ivory tower the last decade or so. They've been behind substantial pools of investments, and I'm sure they've made both substantial mistakes and substantial home runs that should serve them well at RBS.
