Mr. Handa commented, "I look forward to bringing my background in cross-asset risk analytics, smart beta index development, and factor-based portfolio analysis to help introduce MPI's differentiated products and services to asset owners, consultants and institutional asset managers. With recent consolidation and regulatory initiatives, the need to better understand opaque products has never been higher, nor the desire to find cost-effective, liquid, factor-based solutions for alternatives. MPI will continue to lead the industry in these areas."
Mr. Matiychenko, CFA, CAIA, FRM, joins as Executive Vice President, Head of Transparency and Analytics. In this role, Mr. Matiychenko will oversee product development and delivery of MPI's software, data and analytical solutions. His expertise in risk management, quantitative analysis, alternative investments, structured finance and programming was sought to advance MPI's technology and its role within client organizations. Prior to joining MPI, Mr. Matiychenko founded Risk-AI, an award-winning risk management technology and consulting firm with a focus on hedge funds, fund-of-hedge-funds (FoHFs) and family offices. At Risk-AI, he focused on evolving the delivery of applications through emerging technologies, including unique cloud and mobile software. Prior, Mr. Matiychenko was Vice President in the Risk Management and Quantitative Research Group at Ivy Asset Management, a leading FoHFs within BNY Mellon, where he played an integral role in their risk management program, including building a state-of-the-art risk management infrastructure. Earlier, Aleksey was a Senior Developer at JPMorgan's Proprietary Positioning group. Aleksey holds an MBA in Finance and Statistics from NYU Stern School of Business.
"Historically, the strength, rigor and precision of MPI's analytics have afforded clients unique ways to measure performance and understand risk exposure within funds and portfolios. It is now my aim to expand upon the team's great work by leveraging next generation technologies, applications and risk analysis techniques, as well as new delivery methods and surveillance services, to help clients better achieve their organizational goals with our advanced quantitative solutions," said Mr. Matiychenko.
