BOSTON, Sept. 20, 2016 – Today, PhaseCapital announced that it has appointed Michael DePalma as Chief Executive Officer. In his new role for the Boston-based asset manager, DePalma will lead efforts to commercialize its current product offering, and leverage the firm’s formidable data, trading and technology platform to diversify its product set.
