RELATED TOPICS​

BTIG has added John Agnew, Drew Hall and Evan Jones to its fixed income credit group.

All three will be based in New York, and report to Drew Doscher and Darren Haines, co-heads of the fixed income credit group at BTIG.
 
“This is an incredibly active period within the fixed income credit space,” says Doscher. “We are quickly growing our credit platform by recruiting top-tier, veteran sales and trading talent. BTIG also plans to capitalise on a new breed of sales professionals that are transitioning from the strategy and research side of the business, and have in-depth industry knowledge and market intelligence backgrounds.”
 
Agnew joins BTIG as a managing director of fixed income credit trading. He will provide senior-level direction on the firm’s trading desk, executing transactions in various high-yield securities. Prior to BTIG, Agnew was a senior managing director of high-yield securities at Guggenheim Partners. Previously, he was the co-founder and senior managing director of Summit Securities Group. Earlier in his career, Agnew held a number of senior high-yield trading roles at BNP Paribas, Fleet Securities, Schroders, Nomura and Dean Witter Reynolds.
 
Hall joins BTIG as a managing director of fixed income credit sales. Prior to BTIG, he was a managing director of high-yield securities at Guggenheim Partners. Hall spent more than 10 years as a managing director in the high-yield and distressed bonds and loans group at Jefferies. Earlier in his career, he held similar roles at Miller Tabak Roberts, Fleet Securities and Citibank.
 
Jones joins BTIG as a managing director of fixed income credit strategy, focused on high-yield and convertibles. Prior to BTIG, he was a senior vice president and credit analyst at Jefferies, focused on capital structure opportunities. Earlier in his career, Jones held similar roles at CIBC, ABN Amro and Bank of America.
 
Haines says: “John, Drew and Evan will play a pivotal role in the expansion of our fixed income credit group across trading, sales and strategy. We are thrilled to welcome them as we continue to bolster our resources for clients.”
