AlphaMetrix, a managed account platform for institutional and accredited investors, has hired Richard Meade to the newly-created position of executive director of client relations.
Meade has over 16 years of experience in the futures industry, covering operations, client services, client technology and sales.
'Interest in the AlphaMetrix managed account platform, along with our research, risk management and due diligence services, has grown dramatically since Bernie Madoff scandal,' says Aleks Kins, chief executive of AlphaMetrix.
'With this growth comes a need to ensure that our current and prospective managed account clients have as positive an experience as possible when working with us. From being a client of Richard's for several years, I know firsthand his ability to provide clients a unique combination of technological sophistication and a personal touch. He's a great asset for our team.'
Before joining AlphaMetrix, Meade was chief operating officer and later chief executive of UBS Managed Fund Services, helping launch and run the UBS managed futures platform. In addition, he also managed many key relationships for UBS' top institutional clients, especially those in the managed futures and hedge fund space.
Prior to UBS, Meade ran futures client services at Goldman Sachs, where he partnered with the firm's top clients to create new web-based solutions to streamline operations around trade reconciliations, cash and margin managements, trade and position monitoring and other critical areas.
