It's a tough time to work in aviation finance.

Deutsche Bank's ex-head of structured credit swaps jobs again

Armin Rothauser has got another new job. After leaving Deutsche in mid-July 2019, Rothauser got a buy-side job witht Starwood a private investment firm focused on real estate and energy investments. Rothauser was leading Starwood's new transportation, infrastructure and energy lending business, but less than two years after joining he's moved on again - he's now leading the aviation lending program at Castlelake, another global private investment firm.

Castlelake announced Rothauser's arrival today. He'll be tasked with developing the firm's aviation lending business, which might be a challenge during the pandemic. 

Before Castlelake, before Starwood and before Deutsche Bank, Rothauser spent six years at Goldman Sachs, where he was a managing director and global head of 'hard asset trading.' At Deutsche, he was a managing director and co-head of structured credit, based in New York.

Rothauser seems to have decided against joining the SoftBank Vision Fund, where many ex-DB people seem to have landed. However, he may not have been sufficiently senior or long serving at DB for that.
