Lapkin, who will be responsible for selection, due diligence and monitoring of funds on the company’s platform co-founded Measurisk in 1999 and later served as president and COO of what became Bear Measurisk after the sale of the company to JP Morgan.

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.
