BTIG Continues Global Expansion with New Scotland Office – Firm Opens 14th Location in Edinburgh

London – July 14, 2015 – BTIG, Limited, the European affiliate of BTIG, LLC, a global financial services firm specialising in institutional trading, investment banking, research and related brokerage services, announced today that it plans to expand by opening an office in Edinburgh, Scotland in July. This will be the second BTIG location in Europe and the 14th location globally. BTIG Limited opened in London in 2008. BTIG serves institutional and corporate clients with locations throughout North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Edinburgh is a natural extension of the firm’s London presence and the ideal location for growth within the region.

Prior to his role at BTIG, he was a Director of Institutional Equities at JP Morgan.

BTIG has seen strong and consistent growth since the firm’s inception. “It’s a testament to the talent of our team members, our sophisticated global capabilities and our commitment to client service that continues to set us apart and create value for clients in markets around the world,” said Matt Cyzer, President and Head of European Equities of BTIG Limited. “Expanding our global footprint by leveraging local expertise in new territories worldwide allows us to offer products and services to a larger global audience.”
