ABR expands ETF team


ABR Dynamic Funds CEO Taylor Lukof (pictured) has announced that the firm has hired two more experts for its volatility-based liquid alternative strategies.

John Mulroy, formerly of Guggenheim Investments, joins ABR in Chicago as Managing Director of ETF Capital Markets, and Stephen Sivillo, formerly of JP Morgan Wealth Management, joins ABR in New York as Chief Compliance Officer.

“Our commitment to remain an independent firm and the growth of our systematic investment offerings allow ABR to attract high-level talent like John and Steve,” says Lukof. “ABR’s focus on operational efficiency and innovative investments will allow our firm to reach the potential we see in liquid alternatives, particularly with regard to ABR’s approach to ‘Smart Volatility.’ John’s experience in the launch of some of the biggest exchange-traded funds over the past 25 years will help shape ABR’s future growth as we continue to expand our offerings. ABR also recognizes that its ability to operate efficiently within multiple regulatory frameworks is vital to its continued expansion. The addition of Steve to ABR’s management team demonstrates our commitment to a rigorous compliance protocol.”
ABR Dynamic Funds, LLC, a New York-based asset management firm, launched three new funds in 2017, including one ’40 Act mutual fund for US investors and two UCITS V funds for international investors. Recent moves in volatility have increased interest among investors in ABR’s products, and the firm recently surpassed USD50 million in assets under management in its volatility strategies.
“ABR’s development of world-class investment solutions and its ability to execute is what impressed me. I’m excited to join a few fellow Amex alums to help ABR expand its product offerings,” says John Mulroy, who was the Managing Director of ETF Capital Markets at Guggenheim Investments. Like Taylor Lukof and his Fund Co-manager, David Skordal, John Mulroy also started his career as an options floor specialist on the American Stock Exchange (Amex).
“Having worked as a compliance manager at some of the largest asset management firms in the world, I am thrilled to join ABR as it prepares for the natural next step of making its products institutionally accessible,” says Stephen Sivillo, who served as the Manager of Mutual Fund Compliance for JP Morgan Wealth Management.
