The newly minted CEO of Schonfeld Strategic Advisors and the managing director of investment banking firm Jefferies bought a waterfront home on Miami Beach’s North Bay Road.

Longtime Jefferies executive Ariella Tolkin and her husband, Ryan Tolkin, paid $13.8 million for the seven-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bathroom home at 4380 North Bay Road, property records show.

Ryan Tolkin was promoted to CEO of Schonfeld in January, adding onto his role as chief investment officer. The firm manages $6.4 billion of third party capital, alongside founder Steven Schonfeld’s family office assets, according to a press release.

Abraham Franco, as trustee of a trust in his name, sold the 7,748-square-foot house. It features a home office, housekeeper’s quarters, a two-car garage, pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and dock, according to the listing.
