Zirpolo resurfaces at WallachBeth


Rory Zirpolo has taken on a new position as managing director and equity finance relationship manager at WallachBeth, a institutional execution services provider.

Zirpolo moves to WallachBeth from Cantor Fitzgerald, a global financial services provider, where he was managing director of securities lending.

At Cantor, Zirpolo was responsible for five traders managing $500 million supply (cash) for US trading, including securities lending, pricing trades and monitoring position limits.

Prior to Cantor, Zirpolo was managing director and head of Cowen Equity Finance Group, a clearing equity finance broker-dealer, between 2012 and 2015.

He also served at Credit Suisse for 11 years.

Zirpolo is understood to be taking over some of the responsibilities of Brett Weiss who moved to S3 Partners as a director of business development in September, but Zirpolo will predominantly be focused on relationship manager.

At WallachBeth Weiss provided financing solutions to global banks, broker-dealers and financial institutions through securities lending, repo and triparty services, among others.
