How Point72’s highest-ranking woman worked her way up the ladder
January 9, 2017
Rachel D’Antonio is a managing director, the treasurer and the head of broker relations at Point72 Asset Management and the highest-ranking woman at the firm. D’Antonio is responsible for overseeing the family office’s equity financing, managing its credit counterparty relationships and its contract negotiations across products and counterparties. She is the firm’s main liaison with big banks.
“I started my career at Point72 in operations, and then about a year and a half ago they asked me to take on the role of treasurer, which involves handling our financing activities, cash management and credit processes,” D’Antonio said. “In the beginning part of 2016, they asked me to take over broker relations as well.
“Most places don’t combine the two roles, but the biggest broker relationships we have are with the large banks, so that overlaps with my treasury responsibilities, as I’m their main point of contact,” she said.
