Feb 5 2010 | 11:15am ET

German private bank BHF-Bank has added a Cantor Fitzgerald veteran to head its hedge fund sales unit.

Gilbert Fischer joins the Frankfurt-based firm on Monday, Bloomberg News reports. He’ll serve as head of BHF’s hedge fund sales trading unit.

Fischer joins from Cantor, where he was a managing director in global equities and derivatives in Zurich, Switzerland. He’s no stranger to Frankfurt, having gotten his start in the German financial capital at Dresdner Kleinwort, before moving to UBS’s pan-European sales trading team in the city.
