Morgan Stanley’s Ortega Said to Leave Emerging-Markets Trading

January 09, 2012

Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Fernando Ortega, the head of Morgan Stanley’s emerging-market fixed-income sales and trading desk in London, has left the bank, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

Ortega was a managing director at the U.S. firm, said the people, who declined to be identified because the matter is private. Amanda Webb, an executive director in the securitization sales department, and Janko Nedic, a salesman for collateralized loan obligations, also left, the people said.

Phone calls to Webb, Nedic and Ortega at Morgan Stanley’s offices weren’t returned.

Patrick Lynch, the lender’s head of European credit sales and trading, was reported to have left earlier.

Hugh Fraser, a spokesman for Morgan Stanley in London, declined to comment on the departures.
