3 minute read

BTIG has declared new co-heads to lead its Asia-Pacific division, alongside a fresh chief strategy officer for its Hong Kong arm. 

BTIG Australia chief executive Andrew Dalgleish and Singapore CEO Trevor Harrison have been named co-heads of BTIG Asia Pacific. 

Meanwhile Samuel Leung, head of electronic trading and technology for BTIG Asia Pacific has been appointed chief strategy officer of BTIG Hong Kong.

They will each also continue in their current roles with the firm, where they focus on BTIG’s institutional, outsource and electronic trading clients in the region.


Mr Harrison is also head of BTIG Asia-Pacific client relationship management, in addition to being BTIG Singapore CEO. 

Richard Jacklin, head of BTIG international equities and client relationship management, commented that the appointments represent the “ongoing revolution and advancement” of BTIG in the region.

“Andrew, Trevor and Samuel have a deep understanding of BTIG’s product suite and the case for why our solutions are so compelling to institutional and corporate clients,” Mr Jacklin said.

The firm has expressed ambitions for broadening its APAC footprint. It has made a number of senior hires in Asia and Australia as of late, in addition to recently establishing a Tokyo office led by Shingo Yatsui, exclusively focused on capital markets and investment banking assignments.

In Sydney, the firm recently hired Sam Coates, former head of European sales trading at Royal Bank of Canada in London, and Christian Clementson, a former director of sales trading at Société Générale. In Singapore, Andrew Jackson, former head of Japanese equities at SooChow, joined the firm as well.

“We are pleased to announce Andrew, Trevor and Samuel’s new roles,” Scott Kovalik, co-founder and CEO of BTIG commented. 

“They are proven professionals, and we are confident that they are the right team to lead the firm in the region. I look forward to collaborating with them as we push into new markets and capitalise on future opportunities.”
