Barclays Capital has hired Mark Higgins, an equity derivatives sales professional covering Irish and Scandinavian clients at SG Corporate and Investment Banking in London, to fill a newly created role in the investor solutions team. He is covering the same client base.
Giles Rothwell, managing director and global head of investor solutions sales, said this newly created role is part of the firm's plans to increase its investor coverage. The firm expects to hire several other sales professionals over the coming months, he added, declining to give further details on this point.
At SG Corporate and Investment Banking, Higgins reported to David Escoffier, head of equity derivatives in London. Escoffier declined comment.
