Bank of America Merrill Lynch has beefed up its Europe, Middle East and Asia prime brokerage business with four hires.

Martin Donnelly has been named European head of hedge fund consulting in BofA's EMEA hedge fund sales group. He joins from Credit Suisse.

Ross MacDougall is the firm's new head of EMEA stock-loan trading. He was formerly executive director of financing arbitrage at Morgan Stanley.

"Daniel, Ross, Martin and Simon join the team with excellent credentials and we're extremely pleased to have attracted individuals of their caliber," Sean Capstick, co-head of regional prime brokerage, said. "Collectively they bring with them extensive knowledge of the market which will be vital as we look to firmly establish our prime brokerage team as one of the best in the industry."
