Assets under management:
Fund(s) for which you trade:
I trade for and manage all equity funds at First Quadrant.
Types of products traded:
On my desk I trade purely equities, which includes U.S. and European equities. Under that umbrella we trade large cap, mid cap and small cap. We also offer a market-neutral strategy.
Daily volume in equities:
$1.5 million shares.
Structure of trading department:
Our trading desk is divided by strategy, trade size and market between two traders. It's divided that way, but it's not written in stone; we need to cover each other and step in when needed.
I worked at Baraban Securities, a small regional retail brokerage firm in Culiver City, Calif., a couple of years prior to joining First Quadrant in 1994.
I have a B.S. in finance from California Polytechnic University.
Right now I am interested in seeing how the NYSE hybrid will work with Reg NMS.
