Jan 22 2013 | 8:53am ET

BTIG, a broker-dealer catering to the alternatives space, has opened a regional office in Atlanta.

Located in Atlanta’s Buckhead district, the new office is headed by Knight Securities vet Beatrix Kondor. Kondor has spent 20 years in institutional sales, having also worked at Merrill Lynch and Kidder Peabody.

BTIG intends to make another four or five hires for the Southeast office in the next few months. The office will offer clients the complete range of BTIG’s services and products.

“An opportunity arose to hire a talented institutional sales trader, enabling us to expand into the Southeast with a strong presence in Atlanta,” Steven Starker, BTIG co-founder, said in a statement. “We are looking forward to building our team and further expanding our focus on the Southeast.”

BTIG already has nine domestic offices in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Greenwich, Red Bank and Orinda.
