Hiring Alert: Cantor Fitzgerald

According to a recent article, Cantor is continuing its expansion into the full-service investment boutique business.  They’ve made an array of moves designed to fill holes in their business, including expanding their equities business, their global presence, and their product range.  They’ve hinted at up to 100 new hires globally, although where is still up in the air. Currently, they’re seeking sales and trading hires with a book of business (of course).

As the article points out, cultural fit will be key.  A former employee describes the environment as one “for the hustlers and thick-skinned only.”  Think that’s you?  Check out Cantor’s current job postings.

Hiring Alert: BlackRock
