BTIG, a broker dealer specialising in institutional trading and related brokerage services, has expanded its prime brokerage group to offer fixed income services, including trading and portfolio financing.

The expansion into fixed income is in conjunction with the launch of BTIG’s global fixed income group in February this year, which focuses on sales and trading of credit products across the full credit spectrum from investment grade to distressed debt.

BTIG prime brokerage previously covered equity and equity options and made the move to fixed income to better meet the needs of its hedge fund clients in today’s market.

"As our clients became more interested in fixed income products, we saw a huge need and opportunity to expand our services," says Justin Press, managing director and co-head of prime brokerage. "We have created a one-of-a-kind fixed income offering that will bridge the gap for hedge fund managers who have traditionally been operating in equities only."

BTIG’s prime brokerage clients also benefit from the firm’s full range of services, including outsource trading, market intelligence, international trading, and access to the equity derivatives team, capital introduction team and commission management services.

The prime brokerage group was launched in January 2004 and caters to start-up and existing long/short equity hedge funds. Prime brokerage and middle office operations have a combined 40+ professionals.
