NEW YORK, June 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Macro Risk Advisors (MRA), a leading provider of global market risk analysis and execution services for investors, announced the formation of a new unit, Asym500 MRA Institutional, to be led by Rocky Fishman.

"In our business, you often get to know your competitors well and in Rocky's case, over the years I have valued learning about his thought process and the substantial analytical toolkit he possesses. As he launched his own independnt firm, we saw an opportunity to craft this new unit within MRA to deliver an exciting new product to clients," said Dean Curnutt, founder of MRA.

"Asym 500 will deliver leading edge analysis of equity derivative markets. I'm excited about collaborating with the MRA team to combine my analysis with their well-established strength at the implementation level to bring an even higher level of options trading sophistication to MRA clients," said Mr. Fishman.
