David Cantillon has left Goldman Sachs to join Morgan Stanley in London as a Managing Director and Head of European Prime Brokerage.
Cantillon joins Morgan Stanley from Goldman Sachs where he worked for 12 years, most recently as head of Prime Brokerage Sales in Europe. In this role, he was responsible for business development and sales of prime brokerage and swaps products to hedge funds. Between 1998 and 2004, Cantillon was Head of European Convertible Bonds at Goldman Sachs.
Cantillon will start in mid April and will be based in London. He will report to Derek Bandeen, Head of European Equities and Stu Hendel, Global Head of Prime Brokerage.
Warren Holmes, currently acting head of European Prime Brokerage, will continue to play a senior role in European Prime Brokerage and will assist Cantillon on all aspects of the day-to-day business.
“I am delighted that David has agreed to join the firm,” says Derek Bandeen. “His wealth of experience will add further strength to our market-leading prime brokerage business. He will be an exceptional asset to the team.”
