Chaudhry will report to Christian Aufsatz, Head of European Structured Finance at DBRS Morningstar. Commenting on the appointment, Aufsatz said: “Considering the current environment of higher-than-usual macroeconomic uncertainty and the ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the performance of loan portfolios, we want to strengthen our focus on exceptional research providing insight into our credit views – especially now as investor-placed European securitisation issuance is recovering.”
“It is crucial to be well coordinated and disciplined on research, thus I am glad to have Mudasar Chaudhry in his new role. Mudasar will enable us to maintain and further develop our thought leadership in European structured finance and covered bond research,” added Aufsatz.
Chaudhry joined DBRS Morningstar in 2011 as a lead analyst on the European Structured Credit team and has been integral to the success of the European Structured Finance group since. “Having led the analytical process for a range of multifaceted structured finance transactions and rating methodologies, I am looking forward to transitioning into a role that will be at the forefront of any developments in structured finance,” noted Chaudhry.
Chaudhry has over 15 years of experience in the European structured finance and loans markets, previously working with PGIM, Bluecrest Capital Management, and Fitch Ratings. He holds a Master of Engineering with first-class honours in Aerospace Engineering from Queen Mary University of London.
