BCS Hires Ex-BofAML Prime Brokerage Head

Apr 15 2014 | 7:35am ET

BCS Financial Group, the largest trader of equities and FX on Russian exchanges, has appointed Max Hayden as the firm’s new head of business development.

Hayden has over 25 years of senior investment banking and industry experience, most recently at Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he held various roles, including COO global equity finance, head of the prime brokerage platform and managing director of the European prime brokerage business. Prior to BofAML, he was with Smith New Court. At both firms, he was instrumental in building clearing and financing businesses, and in overseeing operations and derivatives product development. He started his career in traded options brokerage.

Hayden, who joined BCS at the beginning of March, reports to the London Board. His primary role is to develop the BCS international platform and client base.

The firm has also hired Marat Ibragimov as senior equity analyst to its growing research arm in Moscow. Marat will cover consumer discretionary, food retail, pharma and real estate markets.

Ibragimov has 17 years of experience in financial markets. Prior to joining BCS, he worked as a senior equity researcher analyst at Uraislib Capital, where he also covered consumer discretionary, food retail, pharma and real estate markets. Before that, he was senior equity researcher analyst at Otkritie Bank and Citi Investment Research.

These hires follow the recent appointment of the former Liquidnet head of international, John Barker, as executive chairman of BCS.

In June 2013, BCS was granted UK regulatory authorization, marking the official launch of its international brokerage business, and late last year the firm secured membership on the London Stock Exchange.
