Cowen gains new head of risk for prime


Cowen Group has recruited Bernard Minsky to its international prime services team as head of risk management.

Minsky, who joined Cowen in April, will be based in London and reports to Kevin LoPrimo, head of international prime brokerage.

Prior to joining Cowen, Minsky founded Certior Advisors, a consultancy that provides risk management services to investors. Before that, he was the chief risk officer and COO of Callisto Asset Management.

LoPrimo said: “We are proud to welcome Bernie Minsky, a seasoned professional, to lead our international prime services risk management team. Bernie has more than 30 years of experience in the investment industry as a risk manager, business operator and consultant.”

“Bernie and I had worked together before during our time at Goldman Sachs and are pleased to have the opportunity to do so again. He has a demonstrated ability to assess and navigate risk in a variety of market environments. We believe Bernie will serve our clients well and play an important role as we scale our international prime services business to clients in Europe and Asia.”
