Hedge fund advisory boutique Atrato Advisors has hired Abigail Corcoran as managing director, head of business development.
Corcoran comes to Atrato from New Jersey-based Sandalwood Securities where she'd served as vice president of client development. Prior to that she was a relationship manager within Credit Suisse Private Bank. Before joining Credit Suisse, Corcoran spent three years at advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather, developing brand strategy for the firm's financial services clients.
"We are beyond thrilled to have Abby come aboard," said Atrato's president, Brian Reich, in a statement. "Her leadership and knowledge of the family office and institutional investor community were exactly what we were looking for as we continue to grow. Abby also possesses a keen understanding of our industry's evolving dynamics toward greater client customization, and will help our firm anchor long-lasting partnerships with both new and existing clients."
New York-based Atrato, with approximately $900 million in assets under advisory, provides research and advisory solutions to the hedge fund investor community.
