Former investment bankers set up Gamma Finance in London, will source secondary market transactions on illiquid hedge funds

Wednesday, January 27, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Florian de Sigy, former Head of Structured Equity Sales for Europe at Deutsche Bank, and Javier Rodriguez, previously Senior Strategist and Head of Strategic Accounts at Barclays Global Investors’ clients’ solutions Group, have founded Gamma Finance, a new financial boutique.

The firm, which was recently granted FSA approval, provides investors with innovative services in the alternative investment space. Through its broad client network, Gamma Finance facilitates and sources secondary market transactions on illiquid hedge funds.

“The opportunity is clear. Large numbers of funds have been gated and also sidepockets have been created over the last two years,” said de Sigy, Managing Partner at Gamma Finance. “This process has left many investors with the urgency to reorganise their alternative portfolios, creating several disposals that are perceived as long-term investment opportunities by professional investors.”

Leveraging their extensive access to hedge fund managers, the team also identifies unique investment strategies to help clients optimise their portfolio.

"Our complementary backgrounds in asset management and capital markets mean that we can advise funds on their positions, understanding their strategy," said Rodriguez.
