Smartkarma Opens Hong Kong Office, Hires Research Vet Blennerhassett

The Hong Kong office will support Smartkarma's expansion in the region.


Blennerhassett joined Smartkarma last month as content strategist from interdealer broker BGC Partners, where he was head of research. Before that, he was a director at Knight Capital Group, and head of research at MainFirst Bank, and was also head of research at Hong Kong-based JS Cresvale Securities.

"Hong Kong is an obvious choice for Smartkarma as we continue our global expansion, given its role as a key financial hub for Asia," says Raghav Kapoor, chief executive and co-founder of Smartkar
