Our Team

Benjamin Arnold

Founder & CEO

The concept of Meraki Global Advisors was a direct result of Ben’s determination to deliver asset managers a differentiated outsourced platform. A platform driven by delivering an exceptional service that enables a fund manager to feel confident he or she is generating the maximum alpha possible in the areas they may not have expertise in. In addition to his management responsibilities Ben also focuses on the development and expansion of the trading desk.

Ben began his career as a hedge fund trader with roles at Intrepid Capital Management and Asian Century Quest Capital in New York. Looking to expand his global markets expertise, he transitioned to the sell-side in Asia for a different perspective. He worked for a number of investments banks, including BNP Paribas in Mumbai and Goldman Sachs in India and Hong Kong as a senior sales trader. Prior to this role, he was instrumental in growing Fillmore Advisors outsourced trading desk.

Ben graduated from American University’s Kogod School of Business with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance.
