Pastras joined Fannie Mae in 1997 analysing residential mortgage backed securities and mortgage markets in Washington DC and joined Fitch Ratings in 2004 before moving to Investec.

Most recently Pastras worked at DBRS Ratings as the vice-president of asset based securities and RMBS structured finance.

Michael Bolton, chief executive of Clayton Euro Risk, said: “We are dealing with an unprecedented demand for our services and we’ve created this post to help meet it.

“I’m pleased that Gus will be filling the post. He is a successful structured finance professional and he brings a lot of relevant experience in credit risk management and mortgage due diligence to the table – he’s a round peg in a round hole.”

Pastras said: “The prevailing market conditions in Europe will allow the company to continue its growth. We can expect even higher demand of its services over the next couple of years. I’m looking forward to working with Michael and helping the business to continue to succeed.”
