Fund of hedge fund specialist International Asset Management is adding to its New York-based team. The firm has appointed Jon Pollowitz as an investment analyst and Stephen Bienashski as a junior investment analyst.
Pollowitz joins from Cadogan Management where he spent three years as a senior research analyst. Prior to that, he was an equity research associate at Bear Stearns. Before joining IAM, Bienashski held roles at Regions Financial Corporation and Merrill Lynch.
These two appointments follow the recent addition of Nan Mead as vice president of client development to the New York team.
"We are delighted that both Jon and Stephen have chosen to join IAM's team in New York," said Morten Spenner, CEO at IAM. "These appointments further strengthen our offering in the U.S. and demonstrate our commitment to expanding our investor base in the region. We launched our New York office over seven years ago now and due to the expansion of our U.S. team we're pleased to announce that we will be moving to a new office within New York in the next few months to accommodate our growing team."
IAM is one of the oldest specialist independent fund of hedge fund investment managers in Europe. The firm was founded in 1989 and has offices in London, New York, Madrid and Stockholm. Assets under management are approximately US2.7 billion as of the end of September.
