Institutional broker-dealer BTIG Ltd. has expanded its London-based team with the addition of four new sales and trading professionals: David Abraham, Andrew Rosen, Julie Beecher and Adam Bergenfield. They join a team of more than 30 professionals led by Gary Hayes, CEO of BTIG.
“The addition of David, Andrew, Julie and Adam to our team closely follows the launch of our new fixed income emerging markets team in London, and demonstrates the proactive steps BTIG is taking to ensure that we can meet the needs of our growing number of Europe-based clients,” said Hayes.
Abraham joins BTIG as an event driven analyst from FBR Capital Markets, where he set up an event driven desk in 2009. Prior to FBR, Abraham was an event driven portfolio manager and partner at multi-strategy hedge fund Merebis Capital after being a partner and investment manager at Titanium Capital's Global Event Driven Fund.
Rosen joins BTIG as an emerging markets sales trader. Prior to BTIG, Rosen spent nearly eight years building a sales trading operation at State Street Global Markets in London, working with institutions and hedge funds in London, New York and Boston.
Beecher also joins BTIG as an emerging markets sales trader. She has 20 years of buy-side and sell-side experience, having started her trading career in 1989 dealing for a major hedge fund. She then joined TT International. In 2001, Beecher joined Execution Noble as a founding partner focusing on pan-European equities trading before building Execution Noble’s European-based emerging markets effort.
Bergenfield joins BTIG as an equity-linked sales trader. Prior to joining BTIG, Bergenfield was on the buy-side in New York, where he was an analyst and trader for Penso Capital Markets’ global macro fund.
