Oct 7 2010 | 11:26am ET

Hedge fund veteran Monika Brown has joined investment bank Blaylock Robert Van.

Brown, who has worked at SAC Capital Advisors, Standard Pacific Capital and Everest Capital, was named senior vice president of international equity trading at the minority-owned financial services firm. She is charged with overseeing real-time equity execution in Japan and other Asian markets, as well as with building the firm’s equity execution platform in Europe.

Brown most recently worked at her own firm, Mercenary Trading, where she built an equity trading platform for hedge funds and pension schemes.

“Monika is one of the industry’s more experienced international equity trading professionals and along with Blaylock Robert Van’s advanced execution technologies, we will offer institutional clients a seamless, real-time solution to their overseas trading needs,” Blaylock President Eric Van Standifer said.

At SAC, Brown was a trader for an Asia-focused event-driven portfolio—funded with SAC chief Steven Cohen’s own money—at the hedge fund giant’s Canvas Capital unit. She was previously an Asian and European trader at Standard Pacific and served as an analyst at Everest Capital.
