Skybridge Capital Expands Global Footprint

Thursday, April 12, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: SkyBridge Capital (SkyBridge), an alternative investment firm, today announced the continued expansion of its global distribution footprint with the addition of five new members to its sales team and new partnerships with major distribution platforms.

SkyBridge manages or advises on approximately $6.2 billion of assets (as of February 29, 2012) across a fully-integrated suite of hedge fund products, addressing every type of market participant from large institutional investors to individual retail investors. On the back of the firm’s ongoing asset growth and to address the needs of its clients and distribution partners, the expansion is being supported by the addition of five people to its Global Distribution team in the U.S. and abroad.

Notably, Justin M. Arasin, based in New York, New York, and John L. Langston, based in Houston, Texas, have joined as Directors of Global Distribution, along with two additional support staff members based in New York. Henrik P. Molin has also joined as Director of Marketing for SkyBridge’s European operation and is based in the firm’s Zürich, Switzerland office.

“Due to the demand for our hedge fund product portfolio, we are strategically bolstering our Global Distribution team with the addition of new team members and platform partnerships," said Ray Nolte, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer at SkyBridge. "This steady expansion provides access for an even broader range of market participants to diversify portfolios and enter the alternative investment arena."

Mr. Arasin joined SkyBridge from Arden Asset Management, where he served as an Executive Director on the Client Service and Development team. Prior to a merger with Arden in 2011, Mr. Arasin was a Regional Director at Robeco-Sage, where he spent approximately six years managing the sales initiatives for the Eastern and Western Divisions as well as maintaining the Latin American investor base.

Prior to joining SkyBridge, Mr. Langston was National Sales Director for Salient Partners and was responsible for distributing one of the industry’s largest registered alternative investment funds modeled after large university endowments. He has more than 13 years of experience in the financial services industry and is a Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst.

Prior to joining SkyBridge, Mr. Molin served in several roles in the financial services industry. His career includes tenures as Head of Development of FQS Capital Management, a fund of hedge funds founded by Dr. Robert J. Frey, the former Managing Director of Renaissance Technologies; Head of Business Development of Ironshield Capital; International Business Development Director of Paris-based Systeia Capital Management; and Head of Trading of ORN Capital.
