Goldman Sachs is preparing to kick off its derivative warrants business in Hong Kong, after recently recruiting staff from established rival SG Securities. "We now have the best local marketing team and combined with our global technology platform developed in Europe and Japan, we will be able to differentiate ourselves," said an official at the firm. For the effort the firm hired high-profile warrant specialist Cheril Lee, now-executive director at Goldman in Hong Kong from SG (DW, 7/8) and is bringing in Ron Chia, equity derivatives trader at SG in the coming weeks for warrant trading.

The firm is gearing up to offer its first warrant contracts this week, which will be listed the week after. The official noted Goldman will initially offer single-stock and index products but going forward will look at additional underlying assets such as commodities.

The always-competitive warrants market in Hong Kong has been heating up this year, with new entrants including UBS (DW, 8/12) as well as returnees ABN AMRO (DW, 5/13) joining the fray.
