Cowen Adds Adam Strout In Outsourced Trading

Cowen Inc. has hired Adam Strout in the Company’s Outsourced Trading division as a Director. Strout will be based in Cowen’s Boston office and work with the firms’ global team of 38 traders, across the US, Europe and Asia; he will report to Bobby Croswell, Head of US Equity Outsourced Trading. 

“Investment managers based in Massachusetts have long been a focus of our firm’s Outsourced Trading solution and establishing a physical presence in the market is our way of demonstrating our continuing commitment to clients based in the area,” said Croswell. “We are thrilled to have Adam join Cowen’s Outsourced Trading team and are proud to have him represent the firm in Boston. We believe his deep roots in the area and the substantial relationships he has developed over decades will provide the firm with additional opportunities to tell our story and demonstrate the many ways we serve as a trusted partner to our clients.”

Strout joins Cowen from Diametric Capital, where he served as Head of Equity Trading and was responsible for all global equities, options, swaps and currency transactions for the manager investment platform, as well as managing street commission budgeting and prime broker reconciliations and settlements. Prior to this position, Strout was a Director in Global Sales Trading with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and before that, as a Vice President in Domestic Sales Trading with Deutsche Bank. Earlier in his career, Strout served as Vice President in Global Institutional Trading with Putnam Investments.

“I’m very excited to bring my many years of trading experience on both the buy and sell side to Cowen Outsourced Trading. The tailored solutions the firm makes available to clients is quite impressive, and as the concept of outsourcing gains wider acceptance, be it as a complete offering or as an extension to a firm’s existing infrastructure, I believe that additional investment managers in the Boston market will be interested in exploring the options available to them,” said Strout.
