London-based Heptagon Capital, the $3.3 billion asset management specialist, has made two senior hires.

The company has tapped Alexander Gunz as fund manager in the asset management division and Sebastian Hybbinette as vice president in the ultra high net worth advisory group, focusing on Scandinavia.

Gunz comes to Heptagon from Edison Investment, an independent UK boutique, where he was responsible for writing equity strategy and best ideas reports for institutional investors. Prior to Edison, Gunz worked at London’s Friedman Billings and Ramsey, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse and Hoare Govett, where he launched his career in 1997.

Hybbinette comes to Heptagon from an unnamed UK-based family office where he served as investment director, managing a portfolio of private equity, hedge funds, real estate and publicly traded assets. Prior to this, he worked in the M&A division at Deutsche Bank in London, Avanza Bank and DHL.

Heptagon Capital was founded in 2005 by former Morgan Stanley directors, including Eran Ben-Zour, Tarek Mooro and Fredrik Plyhr. Heptagon caters to institutional and ultra high net worth investors.
