Richard comes to SaLaurMor from Hovde Capital Advisors, a registered investment adviser which manages the Financial Institution Partners Fund, a series of long-short hedge funds with a focus exclusively on the financial services sector.

“We are pleased to welcome Richard to SaLaurMor Capital. After having worked with Richard at Swiss Re, I look forward to working with him again as he enhances our detailed financial statement analysis in the insurance industry”, said Joel Salomon, Founder. “During our discussions in recent months, we’ve come to appreciate Richard’s enhanced statutory analysis since his days at Swiss Re”, he added.
