Cowen Prime Services (formerly Concept Capital Markets) has won the Hedgeweek USA Award 2015 for “Best North American Prime Broker.” This is the second time the firm received this distinction this year, having also won it at the Hedgeweek Global Awards.
It also extends the string of similar awards earned from Hedgeweek in recent years.
Jack D Seibald (pictured), Managing Director and Global Co-head of Prime Brokerage Services, says: “We are honored for this recognition by Hedgeweek readers for our prime brokerage capabilities. As our clients’ trusted partner, we take our responsibility very seriously. We provide robust custody, execution and clearing, portfolio management and reporting, and operational support solutions so that clients can focus on what they do best: make investments and produce long-term outperformance.
“Our seasoned team of professionals, many of whom were former investment managers, is uniquely equipped to understand and anticipate our clients’ needs and preferences. As a result, we are able to deliver tools and support services that enhance our clients’ ability to manage their businesses. As part of the Cowen Group family, clients are now supported by a greater array of services, such as non-conflicted trade execution, world class equity research, and investment conferences. With a shared focus of providing clients with best-in-class products and services, we are also in a position to more rapidly invest in technology and value-added solutions.”
