Responding to growing demands from its hedge fund clients, Bear Stearns has added a sales executive and trader to its metals desk, and is boosting its soft-commodity team as well.
Sid Strutt, current a sales executive at Sempra Metals Group, will join Bear in New York next month, Bloomberg News reports.
