BTIG Healthcare adds MD to investment banking team

BTIG has appointed J Rory Rohan as a Managing Director within its Healthcare Investment Banking division. Rohan will be based in the firm’s New York office, and will report to KC Stone, Managing Director and Head of Healthcare Investment Banking, at BTIG.

In his new role, Rohan will work to expand the firm’s life sciences capabilities and private placement services across its investment banking verticals. As a dedicated product specialist, he will be tasked with structuring and originating transactions for corporate clients. BTIG Investment Banking has seen a steady increase in its deal flow and banking activity in the last 12 months. To support the needs of its growing corporate client segment, the firm has hired a number of senior bankers this year.

“We are pleased to welcome Rory to BTIG,” says Matt Clark, Chief Operating Officer, BTIG Investment Banking. “Life sciences is an important area of growth for the firm and we believe Rory’s experience will make an immediate impact on clients as they evaluate the marketplace. As a private placement specialist, he will also operate as a valuable extension of our Equity Capital Markets team, where he can help clients strategise capital raising solutions.”

Prior to BTIG, Rohan was a Managing Director at RHK Capital, focused on private offerings of debt and equity for middle-market issuers. He has more than 15 years of transactional experience. Earlier in his career, Rohan held several similar private capital markets roles at Enclave Capital and Midtown Partners & Co. He co-authored “Monetary Reform from a Comparative-Theoretical Perspective,” which appears in the Fall 2004 edition of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics. Rohan earned a BS in economics from Hampden-Sydney College, and an MBA from New York University Stern School of Business.

“Given Rory’s life science expertise, we are confident that he will strengthen our healthcare banking platform and enhance our ability to assist clients at all stages of development,” says Stone. “Partnering with our existing team, he will help lead important discussions with key prospects, and provide meaningful guidance to clients throughout the offering process.”
