Fitch, the international rating agency, has announced details of changes to its Asia-Pacific and Australian structured finance teams. The major change concerns Fitch's current director of structured finance in Australia, Ben McCarthy. He will move to the Hong Kong office early next month to take the post of head of Asia-Pacific structured finance.

Natasha Vojvodic, associate director in the Sydney office will assume McCarthy's asset-backed commercial paper responsibilities, and an analyst from the European structured finance team is expected to join the Sydney office later on this year.
