EUROPE – Securities services specialist Brown Brothers Harriman has named Jeffrey Holland as head of European sales and relationship management.

The move was part of a series of appointments aimed at boosting its European presence.

Laura Hoult becomes head of client solutions and William Rosensweig is named head of private account services.

“The added leadership roles were created as part of a series of important investments made by BBH in support of its European business growth and outlook,” the New York-based firm said.

It recently added a dedicated foreign exchange desk in London as well as set up a European securities lending business.

The firm said around half of its $1.2trn in custody is on behalf of European clients.
