Macro Risk Solutions Expands Portfolio Team

NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Macro Risk Solutions (MRS), a leading investment advisor providing innovative risk and hedging products and solutions to institutional investors, today announced a key expansion of its team with the hire of Mayank Seksaria as a Principal and Director of Macro Research in the San Francisco office. With the addition of Mr. Seksaria, MRS expands its macro research capabilities and enhances its ability to provide institutional investors with best in class risk and hedging products along with investment solutions that lead to superior portfolio performance.

“Mayank brings significant macro focused research and portfolio management experience," said Ryan Dow, Principal at MRS. "Integrating Mayank's proven top down research process into our diversified and thematic strategic hedging product will help ensure we are focused on the right risks at the right times. Demand for long volatility exposure that carries well in range bound markets remains a core portfolio allocation for our client base.”

Mr. Seksaria will be working directly with the MRS risk and portfolio teams. The addition of Mr. Seksaria will also help MRS develop additional products that help clients harness mispriced opportunities in the cross asset derivatives space. “I’m very pleased to join Macro Risk Solutions. The team’s unique client centric product positioning and derivatives expertise allows us to focus on specific client needs and structure products that provide real and sustainable value to investors,” said Mr. Seksaria.

“Institutional allocators face a daunting task in risk managing portfolios in a market that is clearly risky but has been extremely unkind to conventional hedging premium allocations. Mayank adds key expertise to MRS as we further build out our capabilities in developing strategies and products that help our clients optimize performance throughout the risk cycle,” said Dean Curnutt, CEO of MRS.

Prior to joining MRS, Mr. Seksaria was at Passport Capital in San Francisco since 2009 where he was a Portfolio Manager and the Director of Global Macro Research. He also previously held a position as a Portfolio Manager at State Street Global Advisors in Boston.
