Barclays Capital builds equity derivatives platform
Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays, is adding to its equity derivatives team across three continents with up to 15 hires in a bid to enhance its structuring, trading and distribution network.
The fresh influx of personnel includes a number of hires from competitors such as Deutsche Bank, Societe Generale and Credit
Lyonnais. BarCap's investor solutions team has also been bolstered with a number of arrivals, notably Xavier Garcia to cover the Iberian region, Guido Contessa to cover Italy and Mark Higgins to supervise Scandinavian business.
Giles Rothwell, the global head of investor solutions, comments: "We are pleased that Barclays Capital is now able to bring our retail structuring expertise and advice to more clients, especially in the US where we are expanding on the business we have already developed in Europe and Asia."
