Fairhills Group hires Steven DiNunzio as principal and CFO
Fairhills Group has hired Steven DiNunzio, CFA as Principal and Chief Financial Officer. Fairhills Group is a New York-based alternative asset management firm originally founded as the family office of Mr. Edward Bronson, a veteran principal investor and former telecom entrepreneur.
The appointment of DiNunzio comes as Fairhills expands its principal investment operations to include the incubation of experienced portfolio managers in new hedge fund strategies. Ultimately, these new funds will be offered to outside investors. Fairhills has recently sought external capital to expand its equity financing strategy and has announced its first seeding project as that of a niche quantitative long-short strategy led by two former senior portfolio managers at Madison Square Investors, a subsidiary of New York Life Investment Management. Led by principals David Benway and Heather Malloy, Fairhills’ efforts to expand into new strategies comes at a time when many talented individuals are rushing to leave shuttering proprietary trading desks and establish themselves ahead of their peers.
In his new role, DiNunzio will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of financial management, operations, accounting, auditing, compliance and reporting throughout the middle and back office across all funds managed by Fairhills. DiNunzio joins Fairhills from Diamond Notch Asset Management, a multi-strategy hedge fund backed by BNP Paribas where he served as CFO.
DiNunzio previously served as Director and Head of Operations within the Equity Fund Derivatives Group at BNP Paribas where he oversaw USD25 billion in hedge fund assets across over 1,000 hedge funds on the hedge fund platform following BNP's purchase of Zurich Capital Markets. DiNunzio began his career in the alternative investment industry at UBS in London where he worked in their middle and back office logistics group. DiNunzio later served as Director and Head of Operations at Dune Partners, a London-based equity long/short hedge fund, followed by serving as Executive Director at PlusFunds. DiNunzio is a CFA charterholder in addition to holding FINRA Series 3 and 7 licenses. He was educated at Pace University where he received his B.A. in Business Administration and Public Accounting in 1990.
DiNunzio will be located in White Plains, NY, the headquarters of Fairhills Group, and will be joining a management committee that includes Bronson, Benway and Malloy.
