BTIG appoints Head of SPAC Sales and Distribution

RELATED TOPICS​

BTIG has appointed Nathaniel Rogoff as Head of SPAC Sales and Distribution.

To date this year, 44 SPAC IPOs have priced raising a total of USD10.4 billion, representing 24.5 per cent of overall IPO dollar issuance, and 39.3 per cent of new issues. In the last 18 months, BTIG has served as a Sole or Lead Bookrunner, or Co-Manager, on six SPAC deals, raising a total of USD1.26 billion for corporate clients.

In Rogoff’s newly-created role, he will lead BTIG’s SPAC sales effort across the US, supporting the interests of fundamental and SPAC-focused institutional investors, while continuing to lead the firm’s Event-Driven Trading Analytics team. BTIG entered SPAC Investment Banking and Capital Markets in 2018 when the firm hired Gil Ottensoser, Managing Director, Head of SPAC Investment Banking, to lead its coverage and effort within the space.

“Nathaniel has been a tremendous asset to the firm. For the last decade, he has successfully developed Event-Driven Strategies and Analytics for clients, many of whom focus on the SPAC universe,” says Scott Kovalik, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BTIG. “In this new role, he will be more deeply involved in BTIG’s SPAC offering and lead institutional sales and distribution of our SPAC product.”

Rogoff joined BTIG’s Event-Driven Trading unit in 2010 from Allen & Company, where he was the lead Event/Arbitrage Analyst for North America and Australia. Previously, he held similar roles at Jet Capital and Merrill Lynch. Mr. Rogoff received a BS from Brandeis University.

“Over the past few years, the equity markets have become more receptive to the SPAC structure, and as a result we have seen premier management teams and leading sponsors become active in these deals,” says Ottensoser. “BTIG’s global platform is well positioned for the asset class, as it provides its clients with a full range of SPAC banking and trading services, from inception through post-acquisition. Nathaniel will help us continue to push the product forward as we leverage our exceptionally wide distribution network for these types of transactions.”
