Jeremy Frommer, CEO of Hedge Fund LIVE
Jeremy Frommer has 20 years of industry experience and is currently responsible for general management and leadership of the General Partner. Previously, Mr. Frommer was a Managing Director and Head of the Global Prime Services Group (“GPS”) at RBC Capital Markets (“RBC”) and was a member of the RBC Global Equities Operating Committee. GPS was a provider of innovative financial services and customized trading technologies for institutional trading desks, hedge funds and individuals. GPS encompassed five business divisions, as well as the Electronic Trading Development Group. Mr. Frommer oversaw in excess of 120 professionals, including a 20-person programming group, ...More and managed the Professional Trading Division, which housed nearly 300 independent traders. Mr. Frommer moved to RBC through its acquisition of Carlin Financial Group (“Carlin”), where he held the position of CEO. Over three years, he is credited with having doubled Carlin's Institutional Sales desk in size and volume while turning Accel, the company's full service direct market access trading system, into a fixture on the trading desks of leading hedge funds across the country. This rapid growth, generated by Mr. Frommer and his team, attracted the attention of RBC Capital Markets Corporation which acquired Carlin on January 2, 2007. While at Carlin, Mr. Frommer oversaw nearly 120 professionals and was the Head of Generic Trading, a broker-dealer affiliate of Carlin servicing nearly 500 independent professional traders. Prior to Carlin, Mr. Frommer was the founder and CEO of NextGen Trading, where he and his development team created proprietary arbitrage trading software, oversaw a group of 30 proprietary traders and a ten-person event-driven sell side trading desk specializing in algorithmic execution. NextGen Trading began its integration with Carlin in 2002, first as an affiliate, and then completed a merger with Carlin in late 2004. Mr. Frommer was named interim CFO of Carlin during the integration period.
Prior to spending eight years as an entrepreneur and senior corporate manager as detailed above, Mr. Frommer spent time as a Managing Director at Bank of America Securities and a Director at the Royal Bank of Canada. In both positions, he was the Head Portfolio Manager of the Event-Driven Proprietary Trading Group, managing portfolios as large as $1 billion. Mr. Frommer has also held a number of senior positions at other financial institutions, including at Guard Hill Capital as Head Trader, at Bankers Trust as Head Trader of the Principal Investing Group, and at Kidder Peabody & Co., where he underwent his credit training. It was at this early juncture in his career when he started to build professional relationships with both Alan Portnoi and Dean Machado that would lead to the construction of the majority of the General Partner’s senior management team. Mr. Frommer holds a B.A. degree in Philosophy from State University of New York at Albany where he graduated magna cum laude and has studied philosophy at the London School of Economics.
In his later life, Mr. Frommer has taken up the practice of yoga, and he imparts his newfound hobby upon his HFL colleagues. He fashions himself a moral realist. Apart from his Wall Street endeavors, Mr. Frommer is an owner of Overnight Productions, a film and television production company in which he is partnered with acclaimed producer Rick Schwartz, as well as 1OAK, a Manhattan hotspot managed by Scott Sartiano and Richie Akiva.
