Financial services firm BTIG has expanded its London office with the appointment of three sales trading professionals: Chris McGale, Jon Clements and Adam Bowers.

“Chris, Jon and Adam add depth and experience to BTIG’s industry expertise in pan-European sales and trading,” Gary Hayes, CEO of BTIG in Europe, said. “BTIG has expanded its regional and international capabilities over the last five years with offices now in London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia as well as 10 U.S. locations.”

McGale joins BTIG from Bryan Garnier & Co., where he was a sales trader. He began his career as a buy-side analyst in Dublin before joining Merrill Lynch/Smith New Court, where he worked for more than 10 years and held various positions, including managing director of European equities and Irish country manager. After Merrill, McGale returned to Dublin with Numis Securities and later headed institutional sales at Pali International.

Clements comes to BTIG from AllianceBernstein, where he spent 10 years trading European equities in New York and London. Prior to AllianceBernstein, Clements was a UK equities trader with Credit Suisse Asset Management. He has more than 19 years of experience trading UK and European markets, and began his career at Kleinwort Benson, where he was a market maker in the banks and insurance sector.

Bowers joins BTIG from ITG/Hoenig & Company, where he spent eight years covering institutional and hedge fund accounts on a global basis.  Prior to that, Bowers was an equities market maker at HSBC and a financial futures trader on LIFFE with both Lloyds Futures and ING Barings.

BTIG is an affiliate of BTIG LLC, a U.S. based broker-dealer and institutional brokerage and fund services company. Founded in 2002, BTIG, including through its affiliates, employs more than 400 professionals in five different countries.
