NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Macro Risk Advisors (MRA), a leading provider of global market risk analysis and derivatives trade execution for institutional investors, today announced that Danny Dayan has joined the firm as an interest rate strategist. In this newly created position, he will work closely with the firm's clients to assess the global markets and structure transactions that help manage risk.

MRA's expansion into interest rate derivatives comes as investors are confronted with global risks tied to the volatile interest rate environment. The firm's clients, including hedge funds, family offices, pension funds, and endowments, have increasingly sought advice on interest rate moves and their impact on different asset classes.

"As the arc of Fed policy is set to change, interest rate uncertainty has become the prominent concern among investors," said Dean Curnutt, the founder and CEO of MRA. "We are excited to have someone of Danny's caliber join our team.  He brings significant insights and a proven ability to tailor derivative trades that will help us better serve our clients."

Prior to joining MRA, Mr. Dayan served on the Interest Rate Derivatives desk at Credit Suisse Securities and previously served as an Equities and Fixed Income Derivatives Consultant at Murex North America. Prior to that, he was a proprietary trader at SJJ Capital. Mr. Dayan received his MBA at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and holds a Bachelors of Commerce and Finance from Concordia University.

"I look forward to working with MRA's clients, and helping them navigate the interest rate derivatives markets in a time of increased uncertainty," Mr. Dayan said. "Working together with a well-established team of equity derivatives and macroeconomic analysts, we can help investors manage interest rate volatility and generate alpha."

MRA provides conflict-free market strategy and execution services to a client base of institutional and alternative managers, with combined assets under management in excess of $150 billion. Founded in 2008, MRA is a FINRA-registered broker/dealer known for its sophisticated and unique analysis of global macro risks, volatility and equity derivatives.
