Cantor Fitzgerald adds investment advisory services to platform


Cantor Fitzgerald has created an investment and advisory business in its investment capital markets group.

Stephen Ardizzoni joins as head of Cantor Investment Advisors.

Prior to Cantor Fitzgerald, Ardizzoni was global head of research for Union Bancaire Privee Alternative Investments and earlier served as global head of credit and event strategies responsible for USD15bn of the firm’s assets. While at Union Bancaire Privee, Ardizzoni also served on several advisory boards including Ichan Partners.

Earlier, Ardizzoni was a managing director at Crestline Investors, a Bass family affiliated alternative asset manager.

“Stephen’s vision, expertise and experience position him extremely well to develop this business,” says Shawn Matthews, chief executive of Cantor Fitzgerald. “Our clients have asked for this capability and we’re pleased that Steve is on board to drive it ahead. Cantor’s wealth of capital markets experience, broad distribution capabilities and extensive relationships in the institutional marketplace represent a superb foundation on which to build and introduce this new offering to our clients.”

“The need has never been greater from clients who seek exposure to hedge funds and other alternative assets to have an advisor who is truly capable of providing expertise in these opportunities through real world optics and experience,” says Ardizzoni. "Joining Cantor’s team is exciting and it will enable us to deliver a comprehensive solution to clients who have or seek exposure to alternative assets.”

Cantor Fitzgerald has added approximately 100 sales and trading professionals over the past year.
