Fortis-Cum-Credit Suisse Prime Brokerage Hires Four

May 25 2010 | 11:44am ET

Even though it’s about to change hands, Fortis Bank Nederland’s prime brokerage unit is actively hiring.

Prime Fund Solutions, which Fortis has agreed to sell to Credit Suisse, has made at least four key hires in recent months. Jay Moghe and Martin Lui have joined its Singapore office, while Jason Ganz has joined its New York office and Steven Kane has been named to lead the unit’s development of middle-office services for single-manager funds.

Kane is a co-founder of hedge fund administrator OpHedge Investment Services. He’s also done stints at Oak Hill Platinum Partners and Long Term Capital Management.

Moghe will serve as deputy managing director of sales and relationship management in the city-state, joining PFS from Asian Alternative Consulting, which he founded. Lui has been named director of client services and operations in Singapore. He comes to Fortis from Citibank’s alternative fund services group.

Ganz has joined as vice president of sales and relationship management in New York. No stranger to prime brokerage, he worked at Banc of America Securities’ prime business before joining Sungard’s securities finance group.

“We are delighted to welcome a number of new colleagues into our team,” Erik Jens, head of PFS, said. “Whilst we are extremely proud of the culture that we have built, we also enjoy the input from outside of our business. We continuously invite clients to scrutinize us and are always keen to have new team members do the same.”
