Riskon Provides Hedge Fund Support
By Danielle Randall

The international executive search and consulting firm, Riskon, has launched a new division called the Emerging Hedge Fund Advisory Services.

"In light of the various conflict of interest issues that have recently plagued the securities industry, hedge fund managers are seeking an independent infrastructure and support services," said President Barry Honig, in an issued statement. "We offer hedge funds an independent resource to provide unbiased advisory, implementation and staffing support services in key functional areas."

The Emerging Hedge Fund Advisory Services unit provides RiskonŐs clients with consulting services, including developing technical infrastructures: office build-outs and proprietary systems, integrating STP systems with prime brokerage and other back office systems, evaluating and customizing risk management systems and assessing human resource development and staffing needs.

The Tenafly, N.J.- based advisor consists of three divisions: executive search services, corporate governance services and emerging hedge fund advisor services.
