Jeffrey Trongone has joined alternative asset management company Tradex Global Advisors as president.
He will work closely with founders Michael Beattie and Richard Travia to continue the development of the firm as a provider of niche investment products, trade specific opportunities and a disciplined business platform to investors.
Trongone joins the firm as a senior partner and will focus on all commercial activities.
"We are fortunate to have Jeff partner with us to ensure that we maintain the highest business and ethical standards in the industry. Jeff is a seasoned business leader, consummate professional and skilled in all aspects of the hedge fund business. Jeff will be instrumental in working with Tradex as we evolve from strictly a fund of hedge funds to expanding our single strategy hedge fund business," says Beattie. "He brings highly developed industry knowledge and deep relationships to Tradex.”
“I’m excited to join Tradex to complement the firm's unique strengths of developing timely and innovative investment products,” says Trongone. “The Tradex business model is exactly the vision that I believe is most effective for investors in the alternative asset class. I believe that my business strengths will allow the Tradex portfolio managers to fully dedicate their time toward identifying opportunistic trades and emerging, niche hedge fund managers.”
Before joining Tradex, Trongone was chief executive and founder of Malbec Partners, a hedge fund multi-manager platform sponsored by BNP Paribas. Earlier in his career he was chief operating officer at hedge fund Third Point and prior to that chief financial officer and managing director of JP Morgan's asset management business among other well respected investment firms. Trongone began his career at KPMG and is a graduate of Fordham University.
