SPM Adds Four To Investment Team

Jun 1 2010 | 12:03pm ET

Fixed income alternative asset management firm Structured Portfolio Management is beefing up its investment team with four new hires.

The Stamford, Conn.-based firm has recently brought onboard Mehdi Malaki, Yicheng Zhong, Qian Yang, and Kyle Johnson.

Malaki joins SPM as a managing director and will work alongside Vishal Bhutani in managing the fixed income multi-strategy Opportunity Fund. Previously, Malaki was a senior analyst with Glenview Capital Management, where he specialized in making investments in European equities and credit from their London offices.

Zhong joins SPM’s mortgage research team as a vice president. He will focus on SPM’s prepayments strategy and help to expand SPM’s prepayment modeling efforts. Previously, he worked on modeling both agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities at Deutsche Bank, Platinum Grove Asset Management and RBS Greenwich Capital.

Johnson joins as a software developer and will play a key role in assisting the firm to build out its operations, trading and risk management platforms. He has spent the past three years employed in all aspects of hedge fund software development, including working at S.A.C. Capital Advisors.

Finally, Yang will work on the risk management team.

“These key hires underscore SPM’s strategy of building an institutionally-focused asset management firm with the very best talent available,” said Don Brownstein, SPM’s chief investment and chief executive officer. “We are committed to expanding SPM’s talent pipeline with employees who possess a wide range of analytical, academic and practical experiences within the financial and mortgage industries.”

In addition, the firm has begun a remodeling project to expand office space in their Stamford, Connecticut headquarters to accommodate recent and anticipated staff growth.
