RBC Capital Markets has named Marc Fleischman to the position of head of hedge fund relationship management within the firm's Global Trading Client Management (GTCM) group.
He will be responsible for advancing the firm's hedge fund practice through the identification of client needs and sourcing solutions from across RBC's platform.
Felischman reports to Renée DeGagné, head of GTCM at RBC. He leads a team of three people and is based in New York.
Before this new position, Fleischman was a managing director and head of hedge fund sales within RBC's rates business, a role in which he was key in growing the firm's rates distribution to hedge funds both in London and New York. He joined RBC from Citigroup in 2009.
"The creation of this role reflects RBC Capital Markets' commitment to being a leading provider to select hedge fund clients," DeGagné said. "These clients are an important focal point for the firm. Marc's significant experience in understanding the needs of hedge funds coupled with his strong track record in delivering to them effective solutions positions us well to serve this key client segment."
