BlueMountain Capital Management, the alternative investment manager with offices in London and New York, has hired Louisa Strutt as a director of business development.
Strutt comes to BlueMountain from Crispin Odey’s long-short equity hedge fund, Odey Asset Management, where she was responsible for marketing. Prior to that, she’d worked in a similar capacity for the convertible arbitrage hedge fund, Ferox Capital.
At BlueMountain, which specializes in global credit markets and has an estimated $4 billion in AUM, Strutt will implement business development strategies to attract institutional investors and consultants in the U.K., Europe, the Middle East and Scandinavia. She will also be responsible for client relationship management and will have input into product development. BlueMountain says her appointment is part of an overall push to expand its international client base.
“Louisa is a seasoned professional with a proven track record of business development for alternative asset managers” said Stephen Siderow, president of BlueMountain Capital. “She comes to us with an established consultant and institutional network and is extremely well-versed in customized, high-end client servicing. Louisa will be instrumental in increasing BlueMountain’s footprint in Europe and the Middle East and in enhancing our position as a top-caliber institutional asset manager worldwide.”
