Merlin Securities launches 24-hour trade coverage
Merlin Securities, a prime brokerage services and technology provider for hedge funds and managed account platforms, has expanded its trading capabilities to include 24-hour international and domestic coverage.
Troy Prince and John Perna will oversee the expanded trading desk.
“Our clients increasingly seek to trade around the clock and around the globe. We have launched our 24-hour international and domestic desk to provide comprehensive access to the world’s markets,” says Eric Morgan, senior partner and head of trading at Merlin Securities. “Our clients now have the capability to execute in 96 countries across six continents – a level of access that has historically been provided only by the largest prime brokers to the largest hedge funds.”
Prince was most recently a US and Asian equity trader with RBC Capital Markets, where he was the primary trader for a discretionary global equity long/short fund. Prior to that he was a Japanese and global equity execution trader for Barclays, based in Tokyo.
Perna was most recently a vice president and international equities sales trader at J.P Morgan and, prior to that, an associate director and international trader for Bear Stearns. In these roles he gained extensive experience trading in Asian, European and Latin American markets, executing customer orders using DMA, DOT and various types of algorithms.
