Aug 15 2011 | 2:43pm ET

Hedge fund platform and risk management firm HedgeMark International is beefing up its top ranks with two managing directors. Jaeson Dubrovay is joining the firm’s portfolio solutions group and Kristoffer Houlihan its portfolio risk solutions unit.

Dubrovay was previously a partner and co-head of Americas advisory for hedge fund consulting firm Aksia, which he joined in February of 2010. Prior to Aksia, Dubrovay headed the $21 billion hedge fund consulting practice at NEPC.

In his new role at HedgeMark, Dubrovay will work closely with clients, their advisors and consultants to make optimal use of the broad range of hedge fund managers, portfolio construction, and risk management tools available through the HedgeMark platform. He will be based in the firm’s New York office.

Houlihan was previously a director in risk management at Pacific Alternative Asset Management Company (PAAMCO), where he covered managed accounts and commingled investments. In his new role at HedgeMark, Houlihan will consult with clients on understanding and managing global hedge fund and enterprise portfolio risk.

The firm has also added a new director of project management. Stephanie Kakalios joins HedgeMark from hedge fund firm R.G. Niederhoffer Capital Management, where she served as chief operating officer. Prior to Niederhoffer, Kakalios was a partner and head of operations at Allianz Hedge Fund Partners.

“A key goal for HedgeMark, a BNY Mellon affiliate, is to communicate the unique capabilities of our platform to prospective clients and their investment advisors,” said Kenneth Phillips, chief executive officer and founder of HedgeMark. “Jaeson and Kris will play an important role in that effort, while Stephanie will bring her significant experience to the leadership of our operations team.”
