Titan Capital Adds Hedge Fund Vet As Partner

Sep 22 2010 | 8:44am ET

New York-based Titan Capital Group has hired hedge fund industry veteran Keith Danko as a partner.

In his new role, Danko will work closely with Titan founder Russell Abrams, focusing on business development and the overall management of the firm.

“We are extremely pleased to have Keith on board and look forward to benefitting from his experience and long track record of success. We believe he is a great addition to Titan’s already strong team,” Abrams said.

Danko, who will be based in the firm's New York offices, joins Titan from London-based alternative investment firm CQS, where he served as chief executive of the firm’s U.S. operations for the past three years. Prior to CQS, he was the chief executive and chief investment officer of ACAM Advisors, a firm specializing in funds of hedge funds, where he also managed the ACAM ACES hedge fund.

Earlier in his career, Danko worked at Goldman Sachs in New York and in London and served as executive director in charge of international mortgage and asset-backed trading. He was a pioneer in the development of global asset-backed securities. Among other innovations, he structured and managed the first U.K. multi-tranche collateralized mortgage obligation as well as the first U.K. auto loan securitization.

Titan Capital is an alternative investment manager specializing in volatility trading strategies. The firm was founded in 2000 and has offices in New York and Hong Kong.
