Prologue Capital, an alternative investment firm that manages a discretionary fixed income strategy, has named Noah Estrin as a senior portfolio manager focused on trading U.S. Agency mortgages.
Estrin will work in the firm’s Greenwich, Conn., office and will report to the firm’s founding partners, Graham Walsh and David Lofthouse.
“Noah is an experienced trader and we believe we’ll benefit from his specialized expertise,” said Lofthouse, Prologue’s CEO. “The U.S. mortgage market offers many stand-alone opportunities, and gives us additional insight into the other instruments we trade.”
Estrin was most recently co-head of agency mortgage trading at RBS Greenwich. Prior to that, he worked at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.
Prologue Capital manages a discretionary fixed income strategy with an emphasis on inflation-linked investments. The firm, which has offices in London and Greenwich, Conn., has approximately $950 million in assets under management.
