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.

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.”
