“We are pleased to welcome Cory to our team,” said Alan Schwartz, executive chairman of Guggenheim Securities. “His expertise in asset-backed financing will help us take our structured products business to the next level in serving our clients.”

“Guggenheim Securities is the optimal platform for the structured products business,” Mr. Wishengrad said. “Their established investment banking franchise in key industry sectors such as Retail, TMT, Healthcare, Industrials and FIG and their securitized products sales and trading capabilities will complement the securitization team’s efforts to offer the most effective, tailored and complete solutions for clients.”

Wentworth. Mr. Wishengrad joined Barclays from Lehman Brothers, which he joined in 1999 and where at the time of Barclays’ acquisition of Lehman he led the Esoteric Asset-Backed Securities group.
