Tullett Prebon hires Sword

Tullett Prebon Alternative Investments (TPAI), the alternative investments arm of Tullett Prebon, has hired Alastair Sword as the alternative division’s global head.

Sword was previously head of Asian sales at Roubini Global Economics and a managing director at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in London (and most recently in a regional role based in Singapore).

Paul Dunkley, managing director, volatility and credit said: “Since it was formed TPAI has made considerable strides to take full advantage of the extensive broking opportunities which continue to exist across the spectrum of secondary alternative assets. In Alastair we have appointed a financial professional with both the breadth and depth of management experience that we needed to elevate our offering to TPAI’s broad base of global and domestic clients that we service from our offices in London, New York, Dubai and Hong Kong.”
