JonesTrading Taps UniCredit Vet To Oversee Expansion

Aug 6 2012 | 8:50am ET

Brokerage firm JonesTrading has named industry veteran Marcus Martin managing director and head of international and GEM-ex Trading.

Martin comes to the brokerage firm from UniCredit Corporate and Investment Bank where he served as head of U.S. institutional execution and risk for pan-European global markets. Prior to that, he ran U.S. execution at Troika Dialog Investment Bank. Martin also worked at Lehman Brothers, where he was a senior vice president and head of cash and derivative sales trading across CEEMEA, and Merrill Lynch, where he headed hedge fund sales trading for EMEA.

In his new role, he will report to JonesTrading chairman and CEO Packy Jones as well as to the firm’s executive committee.

Martin will oversee the move toward a global franchise based on JonesTrading’s relationship model, an initiative the firm describes as “the latest in a series of strategic moves designed to expand the opportunities for JonesTrading’s clients to access liquidity and execute in blocks.”

JonesTrading will offer trading across Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and across developed and emerging markets. The firm will facilitate and execute on behalf of U.S. managers seeking access in non-U.S. markets and non-U.S. asset managers seeking access to U.S. institutions and markets.

Said Jones, in a statement, "During these difficult times in the financial markets, traders are increasingly relying on relationship-based trading. We have been committed to providing our institutional and hedge fund clients the ability to increase performance by accessing and executing blocks.”
