Merlin Securities has formed a new equity sales coverage and content division, Merlin Institutional Group, which will focus on delivering traditional institutional equity sales coverage and content to medium-sized and large hedge funds.

The group will offer services such as corporate access, company modeling and trading ideas, and will be headed by Jesse Cole and Bryan Miller in New York.
 
“With the addition of this new team, we will now be in a position to provide clients with investment ideas, research and modeling,” said Stephan Vermut, founder and managing partner of Merlin. “Jesse and Bryan have been tasked with building out this group and bring with them a wealth of institutional sales experience. Both are recognized in the industry for their expertise, and we are delighted to welcome them to Merlin.”
 
Cole joins Merlin from Schonfeld IBS, where he was a member of the institutional sales and trading group since its inception in 2004. Miller was most recently with the institutional research sales and trading group at Collins Stewart.
