Hedge Fund Industry Veterans to Offer Capital Introduction Services Through Newly Launched Layton Road Group
March 14, 2018 (HEDGEWEEK) – Tom Mahala, former Global Head of Capital Introduction and Americas Hedge Fund Relationship Management at BNP Paribas, has launched Layton Road Group, which will offer capital introduction and placement agent services to the alternative asset management community through Profor Securities, a member of FINRA and SIPC.
Profor Securities is a 13-year old broker-dealer and placement agent.
Through its inaugural Outsourced Cap Intro for prime brokers service, Layton Road seeks to expand and enhance the current capital introduction approach traditionally offered directly, in-house by teams within investment banks’ prime brokerage groups. “The traditional approach to capital introduction is fraught with inefficiencies today – Layton Road aims to offer a better solution to the market,” says Mahala, a 26-year prime brokerage veteran and President of Layton Road.
