Capco, the global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, has appointed Gary Goldberg as a Director in the company's UK Capital Markets team.
Gary will focus on growing Capco's presence in the hedge funds and prime services segments of this market.
Gary Goldberg, Capco Director, said: "The alternative investments sector is growing rapidly and undergoing extraordinary change. I am excited to be working with Capco to develop solutions that cater to the specific needs of hedge funds and prime brokerage firms. We have a great opportunity to build on Capco's deep industry expertise in what we firmly believe is a very attractive market.
''The industry is going through several fundamental shifts. On the one hand, investors are flocking to size which is leading to industry consolidation; at the same time regulatory changes have resulted in a large number of new fund launches. Capco's deep domain knowledge and thought leadership skills position us strongly to support the needs for fund launches, regulatory requirements, cost-saving and integration programmes."
Jonathan Davis, Capco Partner, Capital Markets domain lead, added: "We are delighted that Gary has joined Capco's UK Capital Markets team. Capco is a fast-growing business and we believe significant growth opportunities exist within the hedge fund and prime services sector. Gary's deep experience and understanding of this area of financial services will be invaluable in defining and expanding Capco's offering in this space."

Most recently, Gary worked as Global Head of Front Office Technology for BlueCrest Capital. In this role he was responsible for front office technology strategy development, strategic risk architecture delivery and overseeing teams dedicated to the global trading desks.
