Conifer Taps FletcherBennett Co-Founder For Sales Team

Jan 10 2012 | 10:34am ET

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.

Conifer says it is expanding its client base amid increasing demand, particularly from large hedge fund managers, for its new cloud-based asset servicing solution, Conifer iCon.

Said McDonald in a statement: "Howard has a proven track record of supporting hedge funds and helping them achieve investment success. His experience and breadth of industry relationships will be an important part of our continued success as we expand to other segments of the hedge fund market."
