He has been a U.S. government bond trader at Salomon Brothers, a trading desk manager (specializing in derivatives of all asset classes) at Morgan Stanley, and a discretionary global portfolio manager at Lazard Freres Asset Management. Those experiences included time spent on the floors of various exchanges.

He is also the Managing Member of E-Plutus DigiArb Technology LLC, a global, e-commerce execution and consulting firm utilizing digital, financial technology (AI, blockchain, data analytics, etc.), and intraday trading of media. In addition, he is a strategic alliance affiliate of the new family office division of First Wall Street Capital.

Prior to founding Augustus Capital LLC in 1997, Mark was a founding principal and Managing Director of the Aries Fund, a healthcare and biotech hedge fund, where he was responsible for risk management, business development, and marketing.
