BTIG, a global financial services firm specializing in institutional trading, investment banking, research, and related brokerage services, has added a new trifecta of specialists to its Fixed Income Credit Group, per a company statement.
The group has on-boarded John Agnew, Drew Hall, and Evan Jones, each of whom will be based out of New York. The trio will be reporting to Drew Doscher and Darren Haines, Co-Heads of the Fixed Income Credit Group at BTIG. The hires follow on the heels of Mr. Doscher’s appointment last month, which has seen the unit expand in focus and personnel in 2017.
Mr. Agnew will be appointed as the Managing Director of Fixed Income Credit Trading – his mandate will be to provide senior-level direction across the firm’s trading desk, while also overseeing the execution of the unit and transactions in various high-yield securities. He joins BTIG from Guggenheim Partners, where he worked as a Senior Managing Director of High-Yield Securities.

Mr. Hall lands at BTIG as a Managing Director of Fixed Income Credit Sales, having also come over from Guggenheim Partners in a similar role as Mr. Agnew.
Finally, Mr. Jones will be installed as a Managing Director of Fixed Income Credit Strategy at BTIG, focusing on high-yield and convertibles. He previously worked as a Senior Vice President and Credit Analyst at Jefferies.
According to Mr. Doscher, in a statement on the trio’s appointment: “This is an incredibly active period within the Fixed Income Credit space. We are quickly growing our credit platform by recruiting top-tier, veteran sales and trading talent. BTIG also plans to capitalize on a new breed of sales professionals that are transitioning from the strategy and research side of the business, and have in-depth industry knowledge and market intelligence backgrounds.”
