WallachBeth Hires Contrarian Gohd

Dec 6 2012 | 11:06am ET

Institutional brokerage and execution firm WallachBeth Capital has hired contrarian trading market strategist Matt Gohd as senior managing director/option strategy.

Gohd comes to WallachBeth from New York-based Revere Securities, where he served as senior managing director and principal for the tactical strategies group. He began his career over 30 years ago with Bear Stearns & Co, later founding the investment banking firm Bluestone Capital.

Said WallachBeth CEO Michael Wallach in a statement: “Our firm’s platform is based on providing objective market insight and conflict-free execution for sophisticated clients. Matt’s well-regarded contrarian approach to gauging market trends and constructing option strategies that capitalize on changes in market dynamics further enhances our idea generation role. His perspective is both a natural complement to our core business and a compelling adjunct to the equity research product that we launched in Q3 of this year.”
