US securities firm Dominick & Dominick has established a consulting arrangement with Steven M. Cohen, who has spent more than 25 years on the buy-side specialising in merger arbitrage, first as an analyst and then for two decades as a portfolio manager.
During that period, his institutional investors included high net-worth individuals, endowments, foundations, and pension funds. For ten years he was chief investment officer of New York-based multistrategy hedge fund manager Kellner DiLeo Cohen.
Dominick & Dominick has also announced the expansion of its merger arbitrage/event-driven team by the hiring of Tony C. Reiner, who has focused on merger arbitrage and event-driven investing since 1996.
Reiner previously co-founded D/R Asset Management, an event-driven focused hedge fund which was later merged into Harbert Management. He most recently held positions as senior analyst and portfolio manager at Richmond Capital.
Reiner will be joining Jonathan S. Van Orden, Richard Hansen and Eric S. Marzucco of the merger arbitrage/event-driven team at Dominick & Dominick.
