LOS ANGELES, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Imperial Capital Group, LLC (“Imperial Capital”) announced that its affiliate, Imperial Capital (International) LLP (“Imperial Capital International”), has completed the process of transitioning its Milan Branch into an authorized subsidiary amidst the end of the Brexit transition period whereby passporting between the UK and EEA states ceased. The new entity is incorporated as Imperial Capital SIM S.p.A. (“Imperial Capital SIM”) and received authorization from the CONSOB and Bank of Italy to operate as an investment firm in Italy, and to passport into other European countries. Imperial Capital’s objective is to make Imperial Capital SIM the driving center for its services in Continental Europe through an expansion of its existing business model. The Milan headquarters is located at Via Torino, 49 – 20123 Milan.
Additionally, Imperial Capital appointed Julien Sida as CEO of Imperial Capital SIM. Mr. Sida, who transfers from Imperial Capital International, joined Imperial Capital in 2015 as a Managing Director in the High Yield Sales Group in London before transferring to Milan. Previously, Mr. Sida was in Credit Sales at KNG Securities, GFI Group & Deutsche Bank. Mr. Sida earned a B.S. from Skema Business School.
“The Milan SIM demonstrates a key evolution of our European franchise, building on the success of our London operation, and leveraging Julien’s significant credit sales experience and relationships. It will help us to better serve our European institutional clients and underscores our commitment to serving the investor community and our long-term commitment to Europe,” said Brian Robertson, Head of Imperial Capital International in Europe.
“Imperial’s ability to adapt is one of our greatest strengths as a company,” said Julien Sida, CEO of Imperial Capital SIM. “Maintaining a comprehensive global sales & trading platform will allow us to expand in Milan as we look to hire key talent whom may be displaced by their current inability to service the continent post Brexit.”
