Tuesday, November 07, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - BlueMountain Capital Management, a private diversified alternative asset management firm with approximately $21 billion in assets under management, today announced that Albert Selius has joined the firm as a portfolio manager overseeing insurance-linked investments.

Mr. Selius will be based in New York, and his responsibilities will include asset selection, analysis, underwriting, monitoring, sourcing, and risk management across the insurance-linked portfolio.

"Strengthening our presence in the insurance-linked asset class reflects BlueMountain's commitment to providing investors with a diversified, non-correlated return profile by capitalizing on opportunities across markets, asset classes, sectors, and instruments," said Andrew Feldstein, Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer of BlueMountain. "Al's expertise is a natural complement to our existing multi-strategy capabilities."

Prior to joining BlueMountain, Mr. Selius was a portfolio manager focusing on insurance-linked securities (ILS) at Pine River Capital. Previously, Mr. Selius served as a managing director at UBS Investment Bank, where he was involved in structuring and trading ILS. Earlier in his career, he held management roles at Swiss Re and Securis Investment Partners. He attended Columbia University, earning Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science and is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
