BNY Mellon unit hires experienced team

BNY Mellon real estate investment boutique Amherst Capital Management has hired three sell-side research analysts with years of experience who it believes will help bring greater insights and opportunities to Amherst Capital’s investors.

Sandeep Bordia, most recently head of securitised products research for Barclays Capital, will lead the team as head of research and analytics, working closely with Laurie Goodman, non-executive director of research and analytics.

Bordia brings with him two former colleagues from Barclays, Jasraj Vaidya and Aaron Haan, who will support these initiatives and the investment teams as research analysts.

“The creation of our new Research and Analytics team represents a momentous occasion for Amherst Capital,” said Goodman. “Since inception, data analysis has been at the core of Amherst Capital’s real estate expertise and the new team both reinforces and strengthens the firm’s dedication to providing clients not only with a cutting-edge technology platform, but also with seasoned talent and innovation.”

During his eight-year tenure at Barclays Capital, Bordia developed and led research analytics, servicing clients in New York and London. Prior to Barclays Bordia worked in mortgage research at Lehman Brothers where he was focused on servicing and origination.

Vaidya has more than 10 years of experience in the real estate investment space. He most recently served as the head of US CMBS & Residential Credit Strategy at Barclays, where he led a team of five analysts on US Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities, Asset-Backed Securities and Residential Credit Strategy. Haan, who also joins from Barclays, has more than seven years of industry experience. Most recently, he served as Vice President within the commercial mortgage research group, specialising in private label and agency commercial mortgage backed securities.
