Nomura Adds C8 Sales Chief

Feb 5 2014 | 8:25am ET

Nomura Holdings has added a hedge fund distribution chief to cover equity sales in Europe.

Mike Ward has returned to banking after a nearly two-year stint with C8 Investments, a quantitative hedge founded by a pair of BlueCrest Capital Management veterans. Ward joined the hedge fund from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he was head of European equity sales.

At Nomura, he'll cover equity sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the Japanese bank said.

"Mike has deep relationships with institutional investors, hedge funds and banks, and I am confident he will help us make further inroads in building our client franchise across EMEA," Ward's new boss, Chris Fleming, said.

Ward spent eight years at BofA before joining C8. He previously worked at Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers.
