Credit specialist Brigade Capital Management continues to grow, most recently hiring Bank of America Merrill Lynch managing director Kunal Banerjee as a senior analyst.

Banerjee is the second person to join the firm from a bank this month. Scott Hoffman, a senior credit analyst in the distressed products group at Deutsche Bank, also left for Brigade. That move was first reported by Bloomberg News.

Brigade and Bank of America Merrill Lynch declined to comment. Banerjee did not immediately respond to a request.
