Macro Risk Advisors Hires Three

Apr 11 2013 | 9:10am ET

New York-based Macro Risk Advisors, an equity derivatives strategy and execution broker-dealer, has made three recent hires—including RBC Capital Markets vet Pravit Chintawongvanich for its analytics team.

Chintawongvanich was an associate on the equity derivatives trading desk at RBC, assisting in execution and pricing, and building tools to manage volatility data and price option structures.

In his new role at MRA, Chintawongvanich will report to George Lam, head of risk strategy, and work on the suite of quantitative models made available to clients. He will focus on building decision-making tools to help clients evaluate trade ideas, back test hedges and better understand and manage risk.

In addition, Evan Karp from BMO joins CRA as a junior sales trader while Roger Masi from Morgan Stanley joins to support clearing and operations. Karp reports to Drew Forman, senior institutional sales trader and principal, and Masi to John Luttenberger, head of compliance and operations.

“In the unsteady aftermath of the financial crisis, institutional investors need a trusted partner who can help them strengthen their portfolios,” said Dean Curnutt, founder and CEO of MRA. “We see a unique opportunity to expand our core expertise of analyzing global market risk on behalf of clients.”
