Jacob hires restructuring banker

Boutique brokerage Jacob Securities is adding a restructuring specialist, hiring long-time banker Benoît Jamar as head of corporate restructuring and advisory.

Mr. Jamar is a New York-based big-cap banker at what has so far been a smaller-cap firm centred in Toronto. He has advised on such situations as upset shareholders working to oust Jean-Marie Messier as head of France’s Vivendi SA and Canada’s Dome Petroleum on its restructuring and sale to Amoco.
