Updated on

Cantor Fitzgerald LP may almost double staff numbers at its European equities business over the next few years as the brokerage expands beyond Wall Street.

The broker has recruited Andrew Shortland, a former head of international equities at Jefferies Financial Group Inc. and chief executive officer at Olivetree Financial, and Massimiliano De Mattia, most recently head of program trading risk at Barclays Plc to lead an expansion. Shortland will become European head of equities and De Mattia will run European trading.
