BTIG, a broker catering to the alternatives industry, is expanding its Australian presence.

Rob Farrington and Andrew Manchee have joined BTIG Australia's Sydney office as equity sales traders.

Farrington brings over 15 years' equity sales trading experience, most recently serving as head of sales trading for Sydney’s Moelis & Co. Prior to that, he was head of domestic institutional sales trading for Credit Suisse and was an equity sales trader for UBS covering leading institutional clients. He began his career in institutional equity sales at Macquarie Bank.

Manchee most recently served as a senior advisor at E.L & C. Baillieu Stockbroking, where he established a specialist sales division, the Alpha Trading Group. He previously worked at Bell Potter Securities where he helped develop a wholesale client base and has served as an equity proprietary trader for Citigroup. He started his career at ABN Amro where he was an equity proprietary trader and also worked in institutional sales.

“Australia is an important component to our expansion in the Pacific Rim,” said Steven Starker, co-founder of BTIG. “We are seeing an increasing level of opportunities in that region and the addition of Rob and Andrew will allow us to broaden our client coverage.”

BTIG also has offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and London and 10 offices in the U.S. The company recently announced the expansion of its London office and additions to many of its U.S. offices, as well as a newly-launched office in Atlanta.
