April 11, 2017

Axioma, a provider of enterprise market risk and portfolio analytics solutions, announced today that Christopher Woidahas joined the company as Managing Director, Index Solutions, responsible for strategy, development and sales in Axioma's rapidly growing indexing initiative.

He joins from BlackRock where he was an Investment Strategist and a Founding Member of the Factor-Based Strategies Group.

Axioma says its index business leverages its portfolio construction expertise and solutions to build systematic indices for third parties, mainly index providers, investment banks and asset managers.

During his seven years at BlackRock, Woida helped to build the company's smart beta and factor-based platforms. He contributed to the design of the company's first fixed income smart beta exchange-traded fund and its quantitative fixed income liquid alternatives mutual fund. More recently, he was the Lead Investment Strategist for BlackRock's flagship style factor hedge fund.

Before that, Woida was with Deutsche Bank Securities for two years, specializing in fixed income structured sales. He began his career at Intel Corporation, where he was a senior research and development engineer.
