Melchiorre joins UBS from Credit Suisse Group in New York where he was a senior member of the high yield credit trading group. In his new role, Melchiorre will be a managing director focused on expanding O’Connor’s credit trading strategies.
“We are excited to add Mark’s talent and experience to our global team, and believe the market opportunity for his credit trading skill set is tremendous.

O’Connor has more than $7 billion in assets under management.
