BTIG Adds 2 To International Equities Team

Sep 20 2011 | 11:12am ET

BTIG, a broker-dealer catering to the alternative investments industry, has beefed up its international equities team with two hires: David Perlin and Marco Frigeri.

Perlin joins as a managing director on the international equities desk, where he will serve as head of international sales trading for the Americas. A veteran trader, Perlin has held management positions at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and HSBC, as well as serving as a partner and head trader at Keel Capital.

Frigeri’s new title will be managing director and sales trader on BTIG’s international equities desk. Most recently, he traded in international markets for HSBC and has also worked as a senior sales trader at Goldman Sachs and Barclays.

“The addition of these two professionals bolsters our international platform,” said Richard Jacklin, head of international equities for BTIG. “They are part of our ongoing commitment to expand our business and offerings to clients, and in particular our expansion into the Latin American and Canadian markets.”

Founded in 2002, BTIG, including through its affiliates, employs nearly 400 professionals in five different countries.
