People News: BlackRock, JPMorgan, Jefferies, Nomura

For Hire

BlackRock has hired Heather Loomis Tighe, a former managing director at JPMorgan, to help manage a group that caters to family offices, foundations and endowments in the Western U.S. and Canada.

Bloomberg News reports that Loomis Tighe, who will be based in San Francisco, will report to Brian Feurtado, who heads BlackRock’s U.S. and Canada family office, foundations and endowment business, according to an internal memo.

In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Jefferies has hired Jonathan Joseph from Nomura Holdings to lead an emerging-market trading unit with Adam Groothuis, as the Wall Street firm draws on the Japanese bank’s staff to build out its team, according to a person with knowledge of the moves.

Joseph, a managing director in sales at Nomura, and Groothuis, who’s led the firm’s Latin American credit-trading unit, will begin December 1, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing personnel matters. Bloomberg reported in September that Groothuis was in talks to join Jefferies
