Wedbush Securities bolsters fixed income financing team


Wedbush Securities has appointed William Barry and Steven Slovak as managing directors for fixed income financing, futures and rates.

Barry and Slovak will report to managing director Scott Skyrm and will both be based in New York.

In their new roles, they will focus on expanding Wedbush’s presence in the futures, options and fixed income spaces.

Barry previously served as head of global business development at Sage Trader.

Prior to that, he was managing director at TFS Derivatives Corporation and also worked in global business development at Jefferies.

Steve Slovak also served at Sage Trader as part of the global futures business development team and as director at TFS Derivatives Corporation. He also spent five years working in business development at Penson.

Scott Skyrm said: “"Having William Barry and Steven Slovak onboard positions Wedbush toward the future. Their extensive combined experience, in both the buy and sell side, is the perfect formula to accelerate our growth with institutional clients.”
