Aegis Capital Corp. Hires Former Bank Hapoalim Staff
New York-based Aegis Capital Corp. serves its clients as a boutique investment bank and financial advisory firm. Since the mid-1980s, the bank has offered high-quality, individually focused wealth and asset management assistance, as well as brokerage services and securities trading. Aegis Capital Corp., under the direction of chairman and CEO Robert Eide, recently added two prestigious new hires to its Corporate and Global Fixed Income division.
Both Michael Agulla and Dave Johnson were most recently part of the team at Bank Hapoalim. Mr. Agulla served at Hapoalim Securities as a vice president for close to a decade, concentrating on corporate and sovereign debt in emerging markets, as well as convertible high-yield issues. Mr. Johnson spent his most recent 12 years at the bank, capping a career focused on fixed income trades and high-yield oil and gas commodities.
Bank Hapoalim, headquartered in Tel Aviv, is one of Israel’s major institutions, with offices in New York and around the world in nations that include the United Kingdom, Mexico, Russia, Canada, and Turkey. It received a 2015 recognition as Bank of the Year in Israel from The Banker, a magazine produced under the imprint of the Financial Times in London.
