Merlin Securities Adds To Prime Brokerage Sales Team

Jun 11 2010 | 9:31am ET

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.

In Jansen's new role at Merlin she will also focus on prime brokerage sales, mostly in the Western United States. She will be based in San Diego and will report directly to Ron Suber, senior partner, head of global sales.

Earlier this week, Merlin announced two enhancements to its existing technology offerings: First, the firm's clients now have the option of reporting in any base portfolio currency, not just U.S. dollars. 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.
