D’Andrea Leaves BlackRock for Highbridge Capital Mgmt.

Dec 9 2010 | 9:47am ET

Mark D’Andrea will join Highbridge Capital Management, an alternative investment management firm that runs about $27 billion, on January 3.

D’Andrea, who will serve as head of global institutional business development, comes to Highbridge from BlackRock, where he led a team focused on business development and client service for many of the firm's largest institutional clients. Prior to this, D’Andrea spent nine years with Barclays Global Investors overseeing several strategic institutional client relationships.

“We are pleased to welcome Mark to Highbridge. This is a dynamic period in the industry, with simultaneous consolidation and growth. More and more institutional investors are seeking alternative asset management firms, but these institutional clients require a depth and breadth of client service that only a few will be able to provide,” said Glenn Dubin, CEO of Highbridge.

Founded in 1992, Highbridge Capital Management is based in New York with offices in London, Hong Kong and Tokyo. J.P. Morgan Asset Management acquired a majority interest in Highbridge in 2004 and purchased substantially all remaining shares in 2009.
