NEW YORK – Arcesium, a leading global financial technology firm, today announced the appointment of Mahesh Narayan as the firm’s Institutional Asset Manager Segment Head.
In his new role, Mr. Narayan will oversee Arcesium’s delivery of its capabilities that support institutional asset managers, including the firm’s cloud-native data platform, investment lifecycle solutions, and associated financial operations. These core competencies are engineered to enable asset managers to scale operations, mitigate risk, and confidently make vital business decisions.

“As institutional asset managers redesign their data management and operational workflows while simultaneously reducing their total cost of ownership, they must address a growing number of challenges. I’m excited to have the opportunity to partner with clients in this expanding segment to shape their data strategy and transformational efforts,” said Mr. Narayan.
“With more than 25 years of experience, Mahesh brings a deep understanding of the industry demands institutional asset managers face. We’re thrilled to have Mahesh join Arcesium as we deepen our reach and deliver our data-first solutions to this space,” said David Nable, Head of Client and Partner Development.
