Agio Technology, a provider of managed IT services for premier hedge funds, today announced that it has appointed Nicole Nakashian, former executive director at UBS Investment Bank, as managing director, Client Services.

“Nicole was our number one choice to lead Client Services since our inception,” says Bart McDonough, CEO of Agio Technology. “She is very relationship oriented. She’ll go through as many hoops as needed to get a client’s problem solved. Clients know that and trust that. That responsiveness and caring for the client gives me great confidence she is the right person for the job of ensuring client satisfaction. That attribute, mixed with her deep knowledge of hedge fund dynamics, made her the perfect pick.”

Nakashian has been leading technology teams within the finance industry for over 10 years. As an executive director within Prime Brokerage Sales at UBS Investment Bank, she managed the services provided to hundreds of hedge funds utilising the hedge fund “hotel” and client support desk, and directly advised clients as part of the business consulting services group. She absorbed the culture and inner workings of hedge funds from her time at Andor Capital Management and BlackRock Financial Management.

Nakashian envisions great things for Agio. “Strategically, what I saw and liked about Agio from the beginning was that they were building the infrastructure first. Instead of starting with desktop support or a local support model, they came out of the gates providing enterprise level services. They took time to build a foundation that is scalable.”
