Robert Karofsky and Research-Driven AllianceBernstein

October 26, 2012

With more than a decade of experience on Wall Street with Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank, Robert Karofsky has served as Global Head of Equity Trading at AllianceBernstein, LP, since May 2011. Managing more than $400 billion in assets, the New York-based investment company maintains a uniquely global outlook as a part of the French insurance conglomerate The AXA Group.

AllianceBernstein offers corporate, institutional, and retail investors a uniquely research-driven value proposition. The firm’s research capacities encompass economic analysis, currency forecasting, and fundamental research. Its extensive team of quantitative analysts builds focused asset allocation and risk-and-return models, creating custom and packaged solutions that meet a diverse range of customer needs. The company notably generated positive media attention in 2010 for innovative risk-parity strategies on pension holdings designed to minimize volatility and maximize returns.

One of AllianceBernstein’s key assets is its high level of perceived integrity. The firm was listed at the top of Forbes’ “10 Most Trustworthy U.S. Companies” list in 2007. Two years later, at the height of the global financial crisis, the company was one of three asset-management firms enlisted by the U.S. government to manage and value TARP funds. Robert Karofsky’s trading strategy with AllianceBernstein combines continuous market research with judicious costs-and-benefits analyses that allow the firm to achieve optimal client results.
