BTIG LLC, a global financial services firm that specialises in institutional trading and related brokerage services, is bolstering its international equities presence and capabilities with two key hires, David Perlin and Marco Frigeri.

David Perlin joins BTIG as a Managing Director on its International Equities desk, where he will serve as BTIG’s Head of International Sales Trading for the Americas. Perlin will spearhead the expansion of BTIG’s global equity franchise into Latin America and Canada. Perlin is a veteran trader, having previously held management positions at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and HSBC, as well as serving as a Partner and Head Trader at Keel Capital. He has an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business, and is Chairman of the Board of the National Urban Technology Center, a NYC-based nonprofit organisation.

Marco Frigeri joins BTIG as a Managing Director and Sales Trader on BTIG’s International Equities desk. Frigeri most recently traded in international markets for HSBC and has also worked as a Senior Sales Trader at Goldman Sachs and Barclays. He brings to BTIG 15 years of experience, specialiing in Latin American markets.

“The addition of these two professionals bolsters our international platform,” says Richard Jacklin, Head of International Equities for BTIG. “They are part of our ongoing commitment to expand our business and offerings to clients, and in particular our expansion into the Latin American and Canadian markets.”
BTIG is continuing its build-out of a worldwide trading and sales platform. Having established its presence in Europe and the pan-Asian markets, BTIG is now pushing into Latin America and Canada and plans further global expansion in the near future.

“David Perlin and Marco Frigeri have tremendous market experience and client relationships,” says Rick Blank, BTIG’s Head of Global Equities. “They are key components to our Latin American and Canadian efforts, adding depth and talent to our existing team. Their years of expertise will enable BTIG to capture more opportunities, provide an enhanced level of service to our clients and will further expand our distribution capabilities.”

“Our aim is to help our clients best execute their goals and investment needs,” Jacklin says. “BTIG is continuing to seek out and hire experienced sales and trading professionals around the world to serve our growing number of global clients.”
