Angela Rodell hired by asset technology company in NYC
Angela Rodell, former executive director of Alaska Permanent Fund Corp., has been name a senior advisor at AssetTech pioneer Pepper as a senior advisor to CEO Pulak Sinha. In this role, Rodell will complement ongoing business development activities, introduce Pepper into new markets, and act as the “voice of the customer” to CTO Karan Singh as the team works to innovate and extend the Pepper platform.
Most recently, Rodell oversaw $80 billion in assets. She was released by the Board of Trustees after continued tension between her and the governing boy. In the Parnell Administration, she had served as Commissioner of Revenue. She is a past chair and deputy chair for the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds and is the current chair for the Pacific Pension and Investment Institute.
“Angela’s experience, wisdom, and deep knowledge of the investment management side of the business is a boon for Pepper, as we continue to develop the leading AssetTech platform on the market. AssetTech is an $84 billion industry and Angela is a proven leader and educator in this space,” said Pulak Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Pepper.
Pepper is credited with coining the term “AssetTech,” which refers to all technologies used to help Asset Managers – especially in illiquid and alternative markets – to leverage data to drive ROI and manage risk. Pepper’s recent rise in the market place is a testament to the need for platforms that help Managers, Investors, and Allocators steward the $120 trillion Assets under Management worldwide.
“From the start, I was impressed by the comprehensive nature of the platform and the intuitive and modular design, allowing it to be highly business-focused and easy to implement and use,” said Rodell. “Data is the lifeblood of this business and we have to put data in the service of return in an agile fashion while managing risk, reputation, and regulation. Pepper’s platform is unique.”
