Hedge fund advisory firm Atrato Advisors has appointed Janna Sobolev as a partner to solidify the firm’s quantitative platform. Previously, Sobolev ran her own independent consulting business, Red Square.
Before forming Red Square, she was responsible for quantitative research and manager due diligence at Gleacher Fund Advisors. Sobolev also worked on the quantitative risk management desk for SAC Capital Advisors.
“Working with Janna will tremendously deepen our research, advisory, and consulting capabilities,” said Brian Reich, Atrato’s president and founder. “Investors and fund managers, especially in this treacherous environment, are highly demanding of those advising them.”
Reich, who formerly headed hedge fund research globally at Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management and Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., founded Atrato in October 2008.
