High yield credit managers re-unite and launch liquid credit strategy

Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - Peter Bakker, former high yield portfolio manager at Lazard and SGS, and Frits Lieuw-kie-song, former high yield portfolio manager at LKS and SGS, are now re-uniting to establish a liquid credit strategy at Channel Capital Advisors LLP.

The arrival of Peter and Frits marks an important new initiative for Channel which will provide risk oversight, operational support and initial capital for the new strategy, their press release says.

“We are both delighted to be back together at an interesting time in the credit markets.” said Frits. “There are numerous investment opportunities in mispriced debt, given the significant economic dislocation and event risk in the market. Catalysts often trigger subsequent price re-alignments, and we seek to capture that value through the entire credit cycle.”

Peter added “We are both very excited to bring our strategy to Channel given their track record in corporate credit and the stability of the management platform.”

“We feel Frits and Peter have the talent, focus and discipline to maximise this investment opportunity.” said Walter Gontarek, Chief Executive of Channel. “Their pedigree is a complement to our own credit expertise and their return profile has little correlation to traditional credit market indices.”
