NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Axiom Capital Management, Inc. (Axiom) a diversified financial services firm today announced the addition of three veteran equity traders to their institutional equity trading team.
“We were excited that Hal, Ethan and Grant chose to join Axiom. Their experience will provide a cornerstone to the expansion of our institutional offering”
The team will be headed by Hal Smolanoff, Managing Director, formerly of Pulse Trading, where he was one of the original members of Pulse’s New York team, and State Street Global Markets, who acquired Pulse in 2011. Hal was instrumental in overseeing the growth of Pulse into a nationally recognized institutional broker-dealer known for high touch quality execution. Joining Hal is Ethan Vickery, Senior Vice President whose 20 year trading experience includes H.G. Wellington, Pulse Trading and State Street Global Markets. Grant Rosenblum, Senior Vice President rounds out the team. Grant was also with Pulse Trading where he played an intricate role in developing their ATS Block Cross into a top tier institutional product.
“We spoke with numerous firms in the process and decided that Axiom was the best fit to accommodate the needs of our clients and complement our collective skill set,” Hal commented. “With the lack of liquidity in today’s market, it is even more important that people are trading in an anonymous fashion – any bit of information leakage, whether it’s verbal or electronic, has an impact on the movement of any stock, whether it is a small, mid or large cap name,” he added.
Mark Martino, CEO of Axiom said “We were excited that Hal, Ethan and Grant chose to join Axiom. Their experience will provide a cornerstone to the expansion of our institutional offering,” adding, “their understanding of nuances of equity execution and client expectations will be integral to our planned growth trajectory.”
