Former Goldman Sachs equities specialist joins Coinbase to expand hedge fund customer base

New hedge fund sales executive joins Coinbase after serving at Goldman Sachs, Citi, Bank of America Merill Lynch, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers.

Digital asset exchange Coinbase has selected a sell-side equities veteran to expand its hedge fund client base.

Tommy Doyle has joined Coinbase’s institutional team focused on leading its efforts in hedge fund sales for EMEA, according to an update on social media.

He joins the exchange from Goldman Sachs where he had been for over two and a half years in an equities focused role. Goldman began trading its first ever Ethereum derivatives products last month.

Previously in his career, he also spent six years at Citi and 10 years at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in equities and prime brokerage focused roles.

“I am looking forward to working with Guillaume Chatain, Drew Robinson, James Morek, Lucy Taylor and the wider institutional sales team at Coinbase Europe to continue on our incredible growth trajectory,” Doyle said in his update.

“I am also hugely excited to partner with our existing hedge fund clients and future prospects who are looking at either exploring or firmly establishing their digital asset trading strategies in what continues to be an ever-evolving crypto macro environment.”

Goldman Sachs had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publishing.
