Cantor Hires Former Mitsubishi Fixed-Income Trader

(Corrects number of primary dealers in third paragraph.)

Cantor Fitzgerald LP, the New York- based bond broker transforming itself into a full-service investment bank, hired Mark Goldman as head of European fixed- income sales, according to a person with knowledge of the hire.

Goldman, who started two weeks ago, had been a managing director of sales and trading at London-based Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International Plc, said the person, who declined to be identified because the news isn’t public yet. Most recently he was an adviser to Zolotov Trust, a macro-economic investment firm.

Cantor, one of 20 primary dealers authorized to trade U.S. government securities with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is looking to hire 100 people in fixed-income and 100 staff for equities globally, Chief Executive Officer Shawn Matthews said in a March 28 interview. The European fixed-income team currently totals about 50 people, the person said.

Along with adding more staff, Cantor is looking to underwrite transactions and Matthews said the first could come within six months.
