Barclays is continuing its push to expand stock trading with six senior hires.
Bloomberg News reports that the bank appointed Mike Lewis as managing director of U.S. equities cash trading in New York, according to Brittany Berliner, a spokeswoman. Lewis, who starts in November, spent 13 years at Morgan Stanley, where he helped develop the firm’s block-trading capabilities.
Barclays also added Andrew Rouff and Justin Kantrowitz, both from Credit Suisse, for the consumer-trading desk in New York. Rouff, a managing director, will focus on trading while Kantrowitz will be a director and a desk-based analyst covering consumer stocks. Both will start in October.
Warren Ackerman has joined from the French bank as head of European consumer equity research along with Michael Sanderson, who will be Barclays’s co-head of diversified financial research, the London-based lender said in a statement. Four other analysts are also leaving for the U.K. bank.
