Pierre M. Wolf
Mr. Wolf co-founded The Corridor Group of companies in 2007. CQ Solutions works with financial institutions to hedge and trade their interest rate exposure. NewRev Management partners with companies as a principal to quantitatively augment their enterprise value. Prior to Corridor, Mr. Wolf founded and directed the Derivative Products Group (DPG) of Fimat USA, LLC, a subsidiary of Société Générale. DPG specialized in structuring and trading financial solutions for the largest hedge funds, investment banks, and proprietary trading groups in the market. Under Mr. Wolf's management, DPG consisted of more than fifty professionals and was widely considered to be one of the preeminent academic and quantitative groups in the alternative marketplace. The group was acquired by a joint Calyon and Société Générale effort in 2006.
Through Corridor in 2007, in financial solutions for commercial real estate exposure, Mr. Wolf aligned several major institutions to launch the first set of indices to track values across different commercial real estate property classes based on transaction history. As a co-founder of REAL, he acquired exclusive rights for derivatives to a comprehensive database of commercial real estate transactions maintained by Real Capital Analytics, Inc. Mr. Wolf with his colleagues brought the database to the MIT Center for Real Estate to construct indices so that institutions could track commercial real estate exposure without owning the underlying asset. They then arranged for Moody's to brand these indices. Finally, through REAL, they forged a partnership with State Street Bank and Trust to augment institutional distribution and custodial support for the indices and their related financial products. Real was named 2008 entity of the year by Real Estate Investment and Finance.
Prior to FIMAT USA, Mr. Wolf served as a Vice President of Lehman Brothers, where he specialized in structuring options transactions based on Central Bank policy, capitalizing on options trading inefficiencies and developing institutional client distribution.
Mr. Wolf graduated from George Washington University in 1982 with a BBA and concentrations in finance and marketing. He attended NYU Graduate School of Business before he left to join an arbitrage strategies group with CSA Inc. Mr. Wolf interns several students each summer form prominent universities in a comprehensive fellowship program and has also been a mentor in the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation.
