Remember Sage Kelly? Former Jefferies healthcare banker whose ex-wife Christina accused him in court papers of:
- Mistaking beds, floors, and walls for toilets following the consumption of drugs and alcohol
- Closing a deal by having sex with a client's girlfriend while said client had sex with the healthcare banker's wife in the same room
- Holding an offsite "Mushrooms Day"with his team
...? And then, following a settlement for an undisclosed amount of money, said that "A substantial portion of what has been written in the press and other media"--based on the accusations she made in court filings-- was "inaccurate, untrue or hyperbolic" and for that she apologized to those who had "been affected"? Sage took some time off from investment banking after all that and then accepted a gig at Cantor Fitzgerald last March. And now he wants you to join the team.
Cantor, which has offices in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, has already approached headhunters about sourcing potential hires, according to people familiar with the matter. One person familiar with the group's hiring plans said appointments in the UK, North America and Asia were likely and that more than 50 new staff could be brought in globally. Cantor has capital markets operations and also runs prime brokerage and investment management businesses. It is looking to recruit for its investment banking teams and the efforts are being led by New York-based Kelly, who joined earlier in 2016 as the group's head of investment banking, people said.
