Hedge fund consulting boutique Atrato Advisors has tapped Hyacinth Chu, an 11-year veteran of the prime brokerage businesses of Morgan Stanley and UBS, as a managing director.
Chu will assume a dual role at Atrato, directing the firm’s business development activities while also contributing to the firm’s research efforts, particularly on the operational due diligence side.
