Risk management specialist Axioma has named industry veteran and former Bank of Montreal Global Asset Management executive George Patterson as managing director of corporate strategy, the company’s second senior hire this month. 

In his new role, Patterson will focus on identifying buyside trends and market opportunities to expand the company’s footprint and accelerate growth, Axioma said in a statement to FINalternatives

Prior to joining Axioma, Patterson was chief investment officer of multi-asset investments at Bank of Montreal Global Asset Management, where he led a $50 billion-plus asset allocation platform spanning stand-alone funds, FX overlays, retail fund of funds and ETF-based multi-asset solutions. He joined Bank of Montreal in 2009 as CIO Quantitative Investments, where he led the development of a global quantitative equity and FX platform that now has $10 billion-plus in AUM. Earlier in his career he was a managing member at Menta Capital LLC, a California-based hedge fund, and a senior portfolio manager at Barclays Global Investors. He began his career at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

“As a long-time client of Axioma, George has a strong grasp of the strengths, capabilities and potential of our solutions and services—not to mention the evolving needs of the clients and markets we serve,” said Sebastian Ceria CEO of Axioma. “The goal of the Corporate Strategy Team is to take Axioma to the next level, and we expect George’s deep experience, knowledge and insights to contribute substantially to that objective.”

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in New York, Axioma offers a comprehensive suite of integrated cloud-based portfolio construction, analytics, risk modeling and optimization tools that help clients create and model portfolios and obtain views of risk across the enterprise and multiple asset classes.
