Macro Risk Advisors (MRA), a provider of global equity derivatives strategy and trade execution for institutional investors, has appointed Meikel Mokry (pictured) as an Equity Derivatives Salestrader.
"Meikel brings a strong base of equity derivatives knowledge and valuable experience in delivering daily market insights," says Brian Bier, the Co-Head of Equity Derivative Sales and Trading at MRA. "Our institutional client base continues to seek our help to implement trades that effectively leverage volatility. Meikel's product knowledge furthers our mission in this area."
MRA's expansion of its salestrading effort comes as investors continue to confront global risks and look to the derivatives market to effectively manage portfolio risk. The firm's clients, including hedge funds, family offices, pension funds, and endowments, have increasingly sought independent advice on how to structure and execute hedging transactions in an efficient manner.
"Our growth plan is finding exceptionally talented professionals to join our platform and deliver value to clients," says Drew Forman, Co-Head of Equity Derivative Sales and Trading. "In this way, we are excited to have Meikel join MRA."
Mokry started his career as a sales and trading analyst at various Citigroup trading desks in NYC. After his time at Citi, he joined New Albion Partners as an associate in equity derivatives strategy, focusing on trade idea generation in the ETF and single stock options space. Mokry has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management from Boston University's Questrom School of Business. He majored in Finance with a minor in Economics, finishing Summa Cum Laude in his graduating class.
