Lane most recently worked at Merrill Lynch in New York where he was director of institutional sales in the equities division. Prior to that, he spent seven years at Goldman Sachs, also as an institutional salesperson.

Talbot Stark, global head of hedge fund relationship management, said, “He’s a seasoned professional with extensive client relationships. His experience and skill-set is the right fit for us and we’ll continue to add people of this caliber to the hedge fund relationship team globally.”

In addition to Lane’s appointment, Mark Walker, head of hedge fund relationship management, Europe, has been named chief operations officer.
