Charles Kassouf joins Valere Capital

July 2012 - Charles Kassouf has joined Valere Capital as a consultant.

Charles has over twelve years of experience in finance and debt capital markets.  He worked at the law firm of Thacher Proffitt & Wood as a senior paralegal and reviewed mortgage documentation for adequacy of title, prepared closing documents for whole loan transactions and helped bring multiple securitizations of private-label mortgage-backed securities (MBS) to successful close.  After studying law at New York Law School, Charles began working at First Albany (now Jefferies and Company) as an associate in the Municipal Banking group.  He structured transactions that linked the performance of the underlying loans such as mortgages on public housing or infrastructure loans to the performance of the public security.  Charles then worked at Fitch Ratings in the Structured Finance group in both the New York and London offices.  He assigned ratings to collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) backed by MBS. In 2004, Charles joined the Royal Bank of Canada’s Infrastructure Group to provide advice and guidance to clients seeking ratings on infrastructure bonds and to explore the use of off-balance sheet funding options for RBC’s portfolio of infrastructure loans.  In 2006, he moved to the Structured Products desk where he structured CDOs backed by MBS and mortgage-related derivatives.  As the financial crisis took hold, Charles began to develop balance sheet solutions that reduced costs of capital and increased liquidity.
