BTIG has expanded its Fixed Income Credit division with several senior hires who specialise in emerging market debt sales and trading. 

Blake Considine and Josh Markfield have joined BTIG as Managing Directors, while Tyler Danielsen joins the firm as a Director.

They each will be tasked with helping to enhance the team’s global reach, industry relationships and client resources across developed and emerging markets worldwide. In their new roles at the firm, they will report directly to Darren Haines and Michael Carley, Sr, Co-Heads of BTIG Fixed Income Credit. 

“Our institutional and corporate client base worldwide is increasingly focused on expanding beyond the developed markets,” says Anton LeRoy, President of BTIG. “Pushing into emerging markets is another important development in our global credit platform and we are pleased to have Blake, Tyler and Josh join us as part of that effort.”

At BTIG, Considine will hold a sales trading role, focused on Asia-Pacific. He has nearly 15 years of industry experience. Prior to BTIG, he was a Managing Director at Seaport Global Securities. Previously, Considine was a Director within Structured Credit at Deutsche Bank and a Vice President within Institutional Flow and Structured Credit Sales at BNP Paribas.

Danielsen will also focus on sales trading within Asia-Pacific at BTIG. He held several emerging market sales and trading roles prior to joining BTIG. Danielsen was a Director within Credit Sales and Trading at Seaport Global Securities, where he spent nearly five years. Earlier in his career, he held similar roles at Tullett Prebon and Creditex Group – Intercontinental Exchange.

Markfield has 25 years of emerging market trading experience at both buy and sell-side firms. As a BTIG Fixed Income Credit Trader, he will focus on the Latin American market. Prior to BTIG, he was a Managing Director within Fixed Income Credit at Maxim Group and Seaport Global Securities. Previously, Markfield was a Managing Director and Co-Head of Emerging Markets at Cantor Fitzgerald. Earlier in his career, he was a Credit Trader at SAC Capital and a Director within Credit Trading at Calyon. Markfield also held trading roles at Gramercy Advisors and Oppenheimer.

“With their emerging market experience, we believe that Blake, Tyler and Josh will be immensely valuable to our clients,” says Haines. “Their knowledge, responsiveness and ability to produce meaningful market intelligence will help industry participants better evaluate their trading decisions and execute effectively.”
