BTIG, a broker-dealer specializing in institutional trading and related brokerage services, has hired Daniel Greenhaus as its chief global strategist.
Greenhaus comes to BTIG from Miller Tabak, where he’d served as chief economic strategist prior to which he’d worked with the firm's equity and bond market strategists. His primary duties involved formulating top-down macro research related to a variety of markets and economies and applying that research to the investment process. Before joining Miller Tabak, Dan was with Credit Suisse First Boston in the high yield research department and before that, Bear Stearns.
In his new role at BTIG, Greenhaus will aid clients in the formulation and implementation of investment ideas through global market and economic analysis.
“Dan’s perspective and foresight will be an indispensable asset for BTIG’s clients,” Steve Starker, co-founder of BTIG, said. “We strive to add value to our clients at every turn, and Dan’s expertise is yet another resource that portfolio managers can leverage as they navigate the markets.”
