BTIG Taps Ex-Deutsche Executive Suaid for Latin America Role

Jul 18 2016 | 9:08pm ET

Institutional brokerage company BTIG has hired Andre Suaid as a managing director within its international equities group.

Suaid will focus on U.S. and Latin American-based institutional clients, navigating developed, emerging and frontier markets throughout Latin America, according to the company. He will be based in New York.

The move comes in response to increasing client demand and heightened focus in the region, BTIG said in a statement. 

Before his new role, Suaid was head of Latin America global prime finance and head of international equity trading for the Americas at Deutsche Bank Securities, and was part of the leadership team responsible for building out the Latin America Synthetic Platform at Deutsche Bank. Earlier in his career, he spent several years in similar roles at Credit Suisse First Boston and FC Stone.

“Andre will be instrumental in expanding the firm’s offering for our high-touch clients conducting business in the region,” said Richard Jacklin, managing director and head of international equities at BTIG, in the statement. “His extensive network of local relationships, understanding of regional trading nuances and client-first approach will be important as we look to unlock valuable pockets of liquidity for clients.”

BTIG is a global financial services firm specializing in institutional trading, investment banking, research and related brokerage services for hedge funds, mutual funds, separate accounts and family offices.
