BlackRock Manager Launches Hedge Fund Consulting Firm

hedge fund launchNew York (HedgeCo.Net) – A former managing director at BlackRock, David A. Geffen, has formed a consulting firm focused exclusively on the hedge fund industry.

“The alternative investment industry is poised for significant growth and many fund managers will benefit from advice on how to successfully prepare their businesses to meet the best practice standards which investors now expect,” said Mr. Geffen. “The firm’s goal is to provide guidance to hedge funds so they can be more rigorous in their decision-making and how they do business with their strategic business partners. The firm will work with its clients to enhance their success.”

The new firm, Geffen Advisors LLC, is focused on treasury management, counterparty risk management, and new fund launches.

Geffen was a manager at Blackrock and Barclays Global Investors (BGI), prior to BGI’s acquisition by BlackRock, where he created and led the Securities Finance group that managed BGI and Blackrock’s prime brokerage, financing, futures clearing and counterparty credit relationships. Before joining BGI, David was Managing Director-Finance and Chief Credit Officer at Amaranth Group, a hedge fund firm based in Greenwich, CT.
