BNP Adds Two To U.S. Capital Introduction Team

Apr 30 2010 | 12:02pm ET

BNP Paribas is bolstering its capital introduction efforts in North America with a new hire and a new capital introduction chief in Texas.

The French firm has named Jeffrey Mettel as a director on its New York capital introduction team. He joins from Muirfield Capital Management, a fund of hedge funds firm he co-founded.

BNP, which bought Bank of America’s prime brokerage business two years ago, has also moved 10-year veteran Afi Lowery to Dallas, where she will lead the firm’s capital introduction business in the southwest United States. Lowery has served as a director of BNP’s prime brokerage since 2000.

“Jeff is a great addition to the capital introduction team, his experience in asset allocation brings invaluable perspective to our clients and depth for our investors,” Emma Sugarman, head of capital introduction in the Americas, said. “I’m also delighted to welcome Afi. Her knowledge of BNP Paribas’ prime brokerage business and senior relationships coupled with her experience in the hedge fund industry will combine to make her a great success in capital introduction.”
