June 7 (Bloomberg) -- Jefferies Group Inc., the investment bank that’s been expanding since the financial crisis, hired Clifford Lanier to head fixed-income cross-product sales.
Lanier was a managing director in fixed income and head of generalist sales at Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank AG, New York- based Jefferies said today in a statement. He was also a director in Merrill Lynch & Co.’s fixed-income strategic solutions group, according to the statement.
Jefferies has been building its fixed-income business by hiring employees from UBS AG, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley this year. The firm hired Jerome Doyle from UBS as a managing director in its municipal-securities trading unit. Jefferies also added Sean George and Richard Roche, from Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley, respectively, as managing directors and senior traders in its investment-grade corporate-bond business.
Lanier’s “experience in cross-product sales will make a meaningful and immediate contribution as we continue the expansion of our global fixed-income business,” William Jennings and Johan Eveland, global co-heads of fixed income, said in the statement.
