The School of Business at Geneseo welcomes Mr. Robert E. Murray, Chief Executive Officer and a Principal of Graham Capital Management as its fall 2015 Executive in Residence.  Bob is an alumnus of SUNY Geneseo where he studied business and finance.  After graduation in 1983, he launched a very successful career in September at Merrill Lynch before moving to Dean Witter in January 1985.  Bob held positions of increasing responsibility at Dean Witter for more than 18 years, which in 1997 merged with Morgan Stanley, and ultimately became a Managing Director at Morgan Stanley in 2002.  He also held positions as Chairman of Demeter Management Corporation (a Commodity Pool Operator at Morgan Stanley), and Chairman of Morgan Stanley Futures and Currency Management Inc. (a commodity trading advisor group.)

In July 2003, Mr. Murray joined Graham Capital Management (GCM) as Chief Operating Officer and was promoted to Chief Executive Officer in 2013.  GCM is a global macro hedge fund located in Connecticut, focused on macro-oriented quantitative and discretionary investment strategies in the global fixed-income, currency, commodity and equity markets.  As CEO, Mr. Murray is responsible for the management and oversight of investor relations, product development, risk management, quantitative trading, and technology.  Mr. Murray is also a member of GCM’s Executive, Investment, Risk and Compliance Committees.  GCM has nearly 200 employees and currently manages approximately $10.8 billion in assets for a global client base which includes institutions and qualified individual investors.

Actively involved in service to his profession, Mr. Murray has been a member of the Board of Directors of the National Futures Association and Vice Chairman of the Managed Funds Association.  He has also served on the Board of Directors of Long Island Cares, a local Charity on Long Island, and is currently a member of the Geneseo Foundation Board and the School of Business Advisory Council.  Mr. Murray’s enthusiastic support for the Student Managed Investment Fund and the forthcoming trading room will have a lasting impact on the Business School.

Mr. Murray will be on campus Friday, November 13, 2015 to speak with finance students and faculty about the alternative investment industry.
