Opalesque Industry Update – Horizon Cash Management LLC, the leading investment advisor specializing in active cash management solutions for the alternative investment industry, announced that Jill King has been named a partner.

Ms. King, who also holds the titles senior vice president and senior portfolio manager, is responsible for directing all trading, operational and research functions. As partner, she will expand her role by helping to execute Horizon's strategy and will further develop ways to achieve Horizon’s short term and long term goals.

Pauline Modjeski, president and executive managing partner, Horizon Cash Management, said, “Jill has made many significant contributions to the success of our business, bringing an increased level of experience to our trading desk and making investment and strategy decisions that have facilitated our growth and improved our client service. We are delighted to name her a partner of Horizon.”

Ms. King joined Horizon as a portfolio manager in 2005, and was promoted to senior portfolio manager within her first two years. She was instrumental in making investment decisions and servicing client inquiries during the economic strife of 2007 - 2010. Ms. King has developed important relationships with Horizon’s clients, helping them to determine their optimal trading strategy and investment outlook and serves as a vital source of information for prospective clients to make a confident decision when becoming a client.

Before joining Horizon in 2005, Ms. King worked at Northern Trust Securities as part of the team trading large transition positions. She also was a managing director at Melvin Securities where she not only managed the firm's investment banking effort, but directed the fixed income sales, trading and syndicate department. Prior to that engagement, Ms. King spent 13 years at First Union Securities (now Wells Fargo Securities) where, as vice president, she established and managed the Emerging Market desk.
