After big year, Beacon expands with mining team

With its expansion bearing fruit in a big jump in trading volumes, Beacon Securities is adding two more names to its sales and trading desk that bring a strong focus on mining. At the same time, one of the firm’s marquee hires of last year has left his post as head trader.

Beacon was, until a year ago, a small firm mainly based in Halifax. But early last year, braving a slowdown in capital markets that had most firms treading water, Beacon decided to open a large new operation in Toronto and staff up in a big way, looking to hire as many as 30 people.
