Grossman joins Axioma board
October 18, 2017

Axioma, Inc has elected Blake Grossman to its Board of Directors. From 2009 to 2010, Grossman was Vice Chairman of BlackRock. For seven years before that he was Chief Executive Officer of Barclays Global Investors (BGI), which was acquired by BlackRock in 2009. Previously he was CEO & Chief Investment Officer of BGI's Advanced Active Strategies Group since 1992.

Said Axioma Chairman William Guttman: "The development of Barclays Global Investors as the leading systematically-based investment firm was achieved by a front-to-back integration of investment systems, along with extensive application of technology, to drive scale and substantial growth in AUM (assets under management)," said Grossman.

"I see the same vision at Axioma, which is redefining the landscape with flexible, enterprise-wide risk and equity solutions that give investment firms that same systematic capabilities to grow and scale, but at a fraction of the cost. I'm excited to have the opportunity to be a part of it."

Grossman is currently Chairman of the Board of Financial Engines, a provider of financial planning services and professional investment management and advice.  He also serves as a Director of CamberView Partners, a leading source for independent, investor-led advice for public companies globally. He is a Managing Partner at ThirdStream Partners LLC and at CHJ Capital Management LLC, both of which focus primarily on early-stage investments in financial services and technology.
