Howard Eisen, co-founder of the FletcherBennett Group, has joined the securities sales team of The Conifer Group, a New York-based hedge fund administrator.
Eisen, whose 15 years’ experience in prime brokerage and capital introduction includes stints at Goldman Sachs and UBS, will be based in New York and report to Conifer CEO Jack McDonald. In his role as a managing director at FletcherBennett, a capital raising and consulting firm, Eisen worked closely with the hedge fund community.
