TABB Group, the financial markets’ interview-based research and strategic advisory firm, today announced that Jeffrey Linderman has joined the firm as a senior research analyst based in their New York office. Linderman brings more than 20 years of experience in institutional and retail equity market making and prop trading, financial management and journalism to TABB as the firm prepares to open a European base of operation in London in 2007.
Most recently, Linderman served as vice president and equity derivatives product controller at KBC Alternative Investment Management, where from 2004 to 2006 he managed a $1 billion hedge-fund trading desk's daily P&L for equity derivatives and convertible strategies. His background includes experience in all equity strategies including OTC options, conversions, total rate of return swaps, variance swaps, volatility arb, convertible/cap structure arbitrage, long/short stat arb and single-name credit derivatives.
"We're excited to have someone with Jeff's extensive trading background and business management and journalism experience join TABB's team of analysts," says Larry Tabb, founder and CEO at TABB Group. "His track record managing a $1 billion hedge fund trading desk's P&L at KBC and as a controller for domestic program trading at Deutsche Bank Securities will be invaluable to our research alliance clients as we continue to expand our coverage of the derivatives markets as well as the other asset classes."
Prior to his positions at KBC and Deutsche Bank Securities, Linderman was a featured columnist at RealMoney.com, a subsidiary of theStreet.com, where he wrote "The Long and Short of It," which concentrated on retail and institutional equity trading strategies and issues from both a structural and psychological perspective. His background also includes positions as an equities trade support manager at Santander Investment Securities from 1997 to 2000 and, from 1994 to 1996, an equities trader at First New York Securities. He earned a B.S. in economics with a dual major in accounting and finance at the University of Pennsylvania, The Wharton School and an M.B.A. in finance at New York University, Stern School of Business.
