Artivest hires Tom Gatto

Monday, August 31, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - Artivest, a technology-driven investment platform that expands access to leading private equity and hedge funds, today announced it has hired Tom Gatto, a 28-year financial services veteran, as head of business development, deepening its already strong ties to the financial advisor community. Gatto will help registered investment advisors (RIAs) learn about the institutional-quality private equity and hedge fund investments Artivest provides qualified clients and their advisors.

In appointing Gatto head of business development, Artivest broadens and deepens its exposure to the growing market of broker-dealers, family offices and RIAs eager to invest in the high-barrier-to-entry private equity and hedge funds available through Artivest. Prior to Artivest, Tom headed advisor relations for Gotham Asset Management and helped lead sales for exchange traded fund (ETF) issuer Reality Shares. Tom has held senior positions at some of the most celebrated firms in the investment industry, including Oppenheimer Capital, PIMCO, BlackRock, Merrill Lynch & Company and Prudential.

“We are delighted to welcome Tom Gatto to the Artivest team and are excited about drawing on his experience and leadership with our next-generation approach to alternative investing,” said James Waldinger, CEO of Artivest. “His long record of success and respected reputation among RIAs continues Artivest’s leadership in serving the advisor community.”

“The demand for alternative investments among RIAs is heightening steadily and has unrivaled potential to change investment management as we know it,” said Gatto. “Artivest recognized that and created a robust investment platform to take ownership of that phenomenon.”
