Cantor Fitzgerald, the US bond trader, is to create 100 new jobs in its UK investment banking operations. Chief executive Shawn Matthews believes an opportunity for Cantor has been created by the near-eradication of mid-tier players in investment banking, where the firm underwrites debt capital markets. "We look at the opportunity and think that the middle tier is under-banked for the first time in a long while," he said.
