BCS hires former Baml MD

BCS Financial Group has hired Max Hayden as its new head of business development.

His primary role is to develop the firm’s international platform and client base. Hayden joined BCS at the beginning of March 2014, and reports to the London Board. 

Hayden is the former managing director of the European prime brokerage business at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

He held various roles at Merrill Lynch before it was merged with Bank of America, including chief operating officer of global equity finance, and head of its prime brokerage platform.

During his long career at Merrill Lynch, and prior to that Smith New Court, Hayden played a key role in building the firms’ clearing and financing businesses. He started his career in traded options brokerage at Scott Goff Layton and has since clocked up 25 years of senior investment banking and industry experience.

The announcement follows the recent hiring of Liquidnet’s former head of international, John Barker, as executive chairman of BCS.
