Cantor Fitzgerald poaches three execs from high frequency trading firm

For hire hiring

KCG Holdings, the high-frequency trading firm that nearly imploded almost four years ago, is losing three high-profile executives to investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald, The New York Post has learned.

The newspaper reports that the brokerage is expected to lose industry veterans Michael Strashnov, the head of customer trading technology, Joseph Pleffner, a director in equity trading, and technologist Menashe Cohen, sources close to the situation said.

The defections to Cantor come just days after stock exchange wannabe IEX, which is awaiting government approval later this month, poached KCG’s Eric Stockland, an expert on high-frequency trading.

KCG declined comment. Cantor did not return calls.
