Ex-Deutsche Bank MD Sets Up Investment Boutique

Jan 27 2010 | 1:41pm ET

Two industry veterans have set up a new London-based financial boutique aimed at catering to the alternative investment space. 

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.

The firm, which was recently granted FSA approval, facilitates and sources secondary market transactions on illiquid hedge funds.

“The opportunity is clear. Large numbers of funds have been gated and also side-pockets 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 reorganize 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 optimize 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.
