CREDIT PRODUCT SPECIALIST

THE BRIEF

To identify an individual with proven ability to raise capital for a credit focused hedge fund.

THE CHALLENGE

To identify an individual who had previously raised capital and hence has a number of strong client contacts, specifically in the Middle East. Additionally, this individual had to be able to work as a product specialist with the credit team and hence needed good credit skills to be able to work closely with the portfolio managers.

THE SOLUTION

A search was run across the major credit hedge funds to identify the top product specialists.  Once this search had been completed our role was to select a short list of candidates taking into account experience, calibre and cultural fit. The interview process took place and we successfully moved the candidate to this new position.
