Merlin Securities has hired Danielle Jansen as a vice president in the firm's prime brokerage sales group.
Jansen joins Merlin from prime brokerage firm Alaris Trading Partners, where she spent three-and-a-half years. She most recently held the position of sales where she worked with over 200 hedge funds around the country.

Second, Merlin now provides enhanced start-of-day positions following specific corporate actions that affect a client’s portfolio, allowing for more timely, efficient and informed decision-making.
Merlin Securities was founded in 2004 and provides services to more than 450 single- and multi-primed hedge fund managers. Services include dynamic performance attribution analytics and reporting, seamless multi-custody services, capital development, 24-hour international trading, securities lending and access to the Gerson Lehrman Group’s network of experts.
