BTIG expands Australian trading presence

RELATED TOPICS​

BTIG Australia, a financial services firm specialising in institutional trading and related brokerage services, has hired Greg Warhaftig as a senior sales trader.

 
Warhaftig is an industry veteran with 26 years of experience. As senior cash equities trader, Warhaftig has a deep understanding of the Australian market and extensive knowledge of its major participants. At BTIG, he will focus primarily on Asia-based clients and will contribute to the firm’s initiatives to capitalise on growth opportunities in the region. 
 
“I’m looking forward to helping BTIG expand into the Pacific Rim by fulfilling the particular needs of a wide range of clients,” Warhaftig says. “It’s exciting to join a growing desk, especially as part of a team that already serves global markets.”
 
Warhaftig has spent much of his career at Macquarie Bank. Most recently, he was an institutional sales trader and division director for Macquarie Securities Group, where he was responsible for leading Macquarie’s sales trading efforts in the Asia region. While at Macquarie, he also served as an international options and futures broker.
 
Warhaftig is the 11th trader hired by BTIG Australia as part of its expansion plan for 2013. The BTIG group globally has been expanding its staff and services recently, including new hires in London, continued hiring in many of its US offices, the opening an office in Atlanta, Georgia, and the launch of both an FX trading and interest rate trading desk.
 
“Adding Greg to our team is another key building block for our business activities in the growing Australia and Asian markets,” says Paul Brech, chief executive of BTIG Australia. “Between BTIG’s offices in Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore, the Pacific region is a cornerstone of our future growth. Having traders on our team like Greg ensures that our clients’ needs are met with the expert calibre of client service we strive to deliver.”
