Veteran of U.S. Secret Service Heads Up AlphaMetrix’s Financial Investigations Group

To root out fraud and to give investors increased confidence that their assets are being managed with institutions of integrity and honesty, AlphaMetrix formally introduced AlphaMetrix Financial Investigations, LLC, run by David Fisher, a 24-year veteran of the US Secret Service.

AlphaMetrix is a research and investment platform for managed futures and other liquid alpha strategies with approximately $1.7 billion on the platform.

“Under David's leadership, the alternative investment company seeks to set a new standard for the due diligence on financial institutions,” the company said in a letter received by HedgeCo, “first focusing on those on the AlphaMetrix platform, and later as a third-party provider of due diligence services.”

Fisher has a strong domestic and international investigative background in financial fraud, background investigations, security planning and electronic crimes. In addition to responsibilities associated with the Secret Service’s well-known role protecting the President, Vice President and visiting Heads of State, Fisher also brings extensive experience from the agency’s core investigative mission into financial institution fraud, computer and telecommunications fraud, false identification documents, access device fraud, advance fee fraud, electronic funds transfers and money laundering.

“AlphaMetrix has always been known for our deep trading manager research capabilities, and the new Financial Investigations group takes that to an even higher level, with comprehensive background checks and reviews of operational risk,” said Aleks Kins, CEO of AlphaMetrix.

“This type of due diligence work takes a consummate professional, so we are particularly excited to have someone of David Fisher’s caliber on board to build AlphaMetrix Financial Investigations into a thriving organization,” he added.
