Hedge fund industry expert Meredith Jones has joined Rothstein Kass to lead its research effort in the field.
Jones was named to the newly-created post of director, and is charged with generating Rothstein Kass' research and content on alternative investments, as well as offering strategic consulting services to its clients. She will be based in Dallas.
Jones joins from Barclays Capital, where she was director of strategic consulting. She is also a former managing director at PerTrac Financial Solutions and director of research at Van Hedge Fund Advisors.
Jones' "industry-leading research on topics such as emerging managers, women and minority owned funds, and the size of the universe, have made her an established regular in publications and on the conference circuit," Rothstein Kass principal Todd Goldman said. "The addition of her industry insight, consulting expertise and business development skills will allow Rothstein Kass to enhance our brand and suite of services, as well as provide significant value-add to our clients."
