Sydney-based prime-of-prime provider Invast Global has recruited Tiffany Besnard to lead its hedge fund sales team for the Asia Pacific region (APAC).

Tiffany joins the firm following 22 years of experience in the investment industry across private equity, OTC trading, prime services, with an emphasis on hedge funds. She is due to take up the reins with immediate effect and will work along with the Invast Global team, led by Andrew Bradshaw.

Prior to her recent appointment, Besnard was the head of institutional business development and OTC trading at BTC Markets where she was overseeing the trading team and client base expansion. Other stops include a 12-year stint at Morgan Stanley, part of a career dating back to 1999.

She was then appointed in 2011 as vice president of prime services sales and equity synthetics at Goldman Sachs where she spent six years.  There she was tasked with managing roll-out of complex global quant all-synthetic funds and product revenue growth for the US West Coast region.

Commenting on her appointment, Tiffany Besnard said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Invast Global at such an exciting time. I’m very much looking forward to working with the team to advance growth and strategic direction. I’m also looking forward to meeting new and existing clients in APAC very soon.”

Gavin White, CEO, Invast Global adds: “With her deep experience spanning two Wall Street investment banks, Tiffany has been at the forefront of the Prime brokerage industry over the past two decades. Invast Global are thrilled to have attracted such top talent and we look forward to seizing on many new opportunities with this powerhouse team we have built. We anticipate Tiffany will play a major role in our continued growth in this area this year and beyond.”

Earlier this month, Invast Global has expanded its offering with the addition of ten soft commodity CFDs, which increases their index and commodity CFD offering to 35 instruments. Invast’s institutional clients can now trade natural, cultivated products such as Corn, Soybean, Wheat, Copper, Coffee Robusta, Coffee Arabica, US Heating Oil, Cocoa, Sugar and Cotton.
