Phillips, HedgeMark founder and CEO. “He brings a tremendous depth of experience across a broad range of hedge fund strategies, risk management techniques, and securities analysis to our company.”

“Ken and his colleagues have built a cutting-edge platform that addresses the key issues of concern to hedge fund investors: transparency, liquidity, control, governance and risk management,” said Lapkin.

Prior to starting Measurisk, Lapkin was a vice president in risk management services at Bankers Trust Company. He began his career at Andersen Consulting.
