To help drive the firm’s services to its prime brokerage and outsource trading clients
BTIG, a broker dealer specializing in institutional trading and related brokerage services, has expanded its capital introduction team with the addition of Jennifer Bloom and Catherine Wagner as vice presidents to help drive the firm’s services to its prime brokerage and outsource trading clients.
Reportedly, the capital introduction team, led by Peter Tarrant, managing director and head of business development, works with a range of managers and has a particular expertise in new and emerging hedge fund managers. The capital introduction team looks to provide clients with effective and targeted introductions.
At BTIG, Ms. Bloom will be responsible for capital introduction on the east coast and across Europe. She joins BTIG from Credit Suisse’s private fund group where she was an analyst. Ms. Wagner will be responsible for delivering capital introduction coverage for the Western United States region. Ms. Wagner joins BTIG from UBS where she was an associate director in the prime brokerage sales team.
Justin Press, managing director and co-head of prime brokerage at BTIG, said: “Our ability to offer our prime brokerage and outsource trading clients an enhanced capital introduction team is an important move in BTIG’s strategic growth plan. We are a client-led business and strive to provide added value at every stage of the client’s relationship with us.”
