In this role, Mr. Lorin will oversee the prime brokerage sales team focusing on liquid alternatives such as hedge funds, CTAs and structuring managed accounts for investors in alternatives. He will report directly to Jonathan Gane, Global Head of Origination & Structuring AIS. Mr. Lorin has been a part of the US Origination and Structuring team since 2010, and has worked for Newedge and its predecessors in various capacities since joining Fimat USA as an account executive in 1990.
