Capital Markets Risk Advisors Inc. has hired James A. McNabb, a cross-currency trader and expert in exotic derivatives products, to become its director of trading risk oversight.

The Australian-born Mr. McNabb, 35, was most recently an associate director of SBC Warburg in London, where he was a price maker for exotic interest rate options.

"James' line experience runs the entire spectrum of derivative products," said Leslie Rahl, a co-principal of the firm, "but he is especially expert in the new generation of interest rate exotics. He knows how to price them out of the box, and most critically, he understands how they behave under volatile market conditions."
