IMC Adds Lombard Team For Long/Short Credit Fund

May 19 2010 | 10:13am ET

IMC Asset Management has hired a credit team from a Swiss private bank to launch a new long/short strategy.

The former Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch team is headed by Rodrigo Araya, who joins IMC as head of investment-grade credit strategies. The new IMC funds—a long/short credit offering and a long-only vehicle—will also feature Oscar Jansen as senior portfolio manager, Robert Manning as head of investment-grade credit analysis and Henk Wiersma as a senior analyst.

The funds are set to launch on June 1.

“The addition of this highly experienced and successful team will significantly expand the scope of asset management credit strategies delivered by IMC asset management to our institutional and high net worth individual client base,” Sander Nieuwland, CEO of the Amsterdam-based firm. “We are delighted to welcome such high quality individuals, with a very strong nine year track record, and a shared vision of excellence.”

Araya joined IMC last month. The rest of his team will come on board in time for the platform launch.
