Newedge announces three senior appointments to prime clearing services (PCS) team

Newedge has made three senior appointments in the Alternative Investment Solutions (AIS) division of its Prime Clearing Services (PCS) team.

James Shekerdemian has been named Head of Origination and Structuring for the AIS division in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, reporting directly to Jonathan Gane, Global Head of Origination & Structuring – AIS. In this role, Shekerdemian will be responsible for driving further growth in the AIS business and overseeing the continued build-out of Newedge’s equity franchise in the region. He brings to Newedge more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, the last five of which he spent on the EMEA Prime Brokerage Sales and Origination team at JP Morgan.
Supporting Shekerdemian will be Charles Hill, who was named Deputy Head of Origination and Structuring for EMEA on the AIS team. Mr. Hill has extensive experience in Newedge’s Prime Brokerage operation, having joined Fimat (the predecessor to Newedge) in 2002.
Newedge also announced that Marc Lorin has been appointed Deputy Head of Origination and Structuring of Americas – AIS. In this role, Lorin will oversee the prime brokerage sales team focusing on liquid alternatives such as hedge funds, CTAs and structuring managed accounts for investors. He will also report to Jonathan Gane. Mr. Lorin has been a part of the US Origination and Structuring team since 2010, and has worked for Newedge and its predecessors in various capacities since joining Fimat USA as an account executive in 1990.

“Appointments of this calibre further strengthen Newedge's capability to deliver superior cross product, cross border solutions for new and existing clients", says Gane.  "They augment a highly experienced and knowledge management team that is well placed to provide the necessary support, guidance and leadership to grow the entire Alternative Investment Solutions business.”
