RELATED TOPICS​

BTIG, a broker dealer specialising in institutional trading and related brokerage services, has expanded its global fixed income team to include a London-based team focused on emerging markets complementing the current US team.

The team is led locally by emerging market veteran Darren Reiss and includes Russell Scott, Cornelia Colonius and Alpesh Lad.

They will report to Alex May, global head of emerging markets.

The addition of this team is the first stage of BTIG’s global roll-out of its fixed income group. Launched in February 2009, the group now has more than 70 employees and focuses on sales and trading of credit products across the full credit spectrum, emerging markets and structured products.

“We are excited to add such an experienced team to our emerging markets offering. Darren’s team will complement our efforts in the US while bolstering our growing commitment to the Ceemea markets,” says May. “Darren, Russell, Cornelia and Alpesh join BTIG with extensive emerging markets fixed income experience from some of the largest institutions in London and bring with them the knowledge and expertise needed to drive our business forward.”

Reiss joins as managing director and head of the emerging markets fixed income sales team in London. Reiss’ career in fixed income markets spans 18 years. He joins BTIG from Knight Libertas, where he was a director on the institutional fixed income sales desk.

Scott joins as managing director in the emerging markets fixed income team as head of Ceemea trading. Scott has 16 years of emerging market credit trading experience. Prior to BTIG, Scott served as executive director in the emerging market trading team at UBS.

Lad joins the emerging markets fixed income group in London with 15 years experience in emerging markets corporates, sovereigns and structured products. Lad’s last role was as executive director, emerging markets structuring and distribution at UBS.

Colonius joins BTIG’s emerging markets fixed income group in London with nine years’ experience in emerging markets on both the buy and sell side. Colonius’ last role was as director of HSBC in the emerging markets sales team covering European pension and hedge funds. Most recently she had joined the trading floor as product specialist and spot trader at HSBC Brazil in Sao Paulo.
