BMO Capital Markets has hired a fixed-income salesmen to peddle its wares to the hedge fund industry.
Andrew Lazar has joined the bank's core rates group. He will focus on hedge funds, as well as other money managers and insurance companies.
"Over the past two years, BMO Capital Markets has been significantly expanding its presence in the U.S.," new boss Bill Kirby, head of U.S. core rate sales, said.
Lazar formerly worked at automated trading platform Quadriserv, where he was head of sales and also focused on hedge funds. He also spent more than a decade in fixed-income sales at UBS.
