Schonfeld Strategic Advisors names new CEO/CIO
Schonfeld Strategic Advisors (Schonfeld) has appointed Ryan Tolkin as Chief Executive Officer in addition to his current role as Chief Investment Officer.
The firm has also announced that Danielle Pizzo, its Head of Investment Business Strategy, has been named Chief Strategy Officer and will join President & COO Andrew Fishman and Ryan on the firm’s Executive Committee.
These appointments further Schonfeld’s long-term strategic plan of leveraging its differentiated culture to broaden its leadership team.
“My goal was to build a multi-generational firm that serves investors well beyond my tenure, and these appointments further establish the strong leadership foundation from which Schonfeld can continue to grow,” says Steven Schonfeld. “Ryan has been integral to the success of Schonfeld since he joined in 2013, and this appointment reflects those contributions as well as my trust in him to continue building a world class investment management firm.”
“In working closely with Ryan and Danielle, I have seen first-hand how their collaboration, expertise and decision making have contributed to the firm’s impressive growth and strong performance,” says Andrew Fishman, who has been with the firm for over 20 years. “With Ryan’s leadership and Danielle’s addition to the Executive Committee, I am confident that we are exceptionally well positioned to continue to meet and exceed the demands of our investors and other key constituents, including our investment talent.”
“I am honoured to have the opportunity to help lead Schonfeld in this new role,” says Ryan. “I look forward to continuing to work with Steven, Andrew, Danielle and the rest of our world-class team to leverage the experience and platform we have cultivated to continue our evolution as a preeminent global investment firm.”
