UK’s BCS Prime Brokerage, a unit of BCS Global Markets, has teamed up with FINRA-registered broker-dealer Tigress Financial Partners to market products to institutional and HNW clients in the US and international markets.
The agreement covers services in global wealth management, asset management, capital markets, investment banking, credit facilities, and research.
Tigress chairperson and CEO Cynthia DiBartolo said: “The ability to leverage a stronger regulatory capital position combined with the unique transactional access we bring as a women-owned firm, together with international breadth and depth of BCS will benefit both firms immensely.
“This extraordinary partnership also allows Tigress to instantly expand to an international trade platform, as well as introduce competitive BCS credit facilities and high-end solutions to our institutional and corporate clients.”
BCS Americas CEO Gary Esayian will now sit on the Tigress board.
“We value diversity and by working closely with Tigress Financial Partners will accelerate our U.S. capital markets agenda and allow our international professionals access to Tigress Financial Partners, proprietary high-quality institutional research, along with streamlined access to the Tigress Asset Management and the robust Tigress Offshore Platforms,” Esayian noted.
