Concise Capital appoints Andrew Relph as Managing Director

Wednesday, January 12, 2022
Opalesque Industry Update - Concise Capital Management, a specialist investment firm primarily investing in short-duration high-yield credit, has named Andrew Relph as Managing Director and Head of its European business operations.

Bringing 20 years of experience in asset management, with particular expertise in business development, Mr. Relph previously held Executive roles at the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation, Antarctica Asset Management, Omni Partners and Burren Capital Advisors.

Andrew Relph commented, "I look forward to contributing to the success of the firm as we make the strategy available to a wider audience. Short-duration high-yield has several benefits in the present environment, satisfying allocators' need for return with built-in inflation protection."

Glenn Koach, co-founder of Concise Capital Management said, "Andrew's background on the credit investment team for one of the world's largest sovereign wealth funds, combined with his roles at a fund- of-fund allocator and over a decade of business development experience, uniquely qualifies him to help Concise as we move into the next stage of our firm's development."

Tom Krasner, co-founder of Concise Capital Management said, "We conducted an extensive search across many candidates and Andrew stood out. We retained him to influence the strategic vision of the firm, including the further incorporation of ESG and diversity within our investment process, making our firm and strategy as accessible and inclusive as possible."

The Concise Short Duration HY UCITS was +9.93% in 2021.
