Palmer Square Capital Management has hired Angie Knighton Long to serve as the firm’s chief investment officer.
Prior to joining the Leawood, Kansas-based alternative investments shop, Knighton Long worked for JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York. There, she held a variety of management and trading roles, including deputy head of credit trading for North America, head of high yield trading, and head of credit derivatives trading. She has been a trader within many products and strategies including high yield bonds, high yield credit derivatives, distressed debt, capital structure arbitrage and structured credit.
Among other career achievements, Knighton Long is credited with creating the High Yield Debt Index, the first liquid credit trading index and the predecessor to all of today’s indices (the Dow Jones CDX.) Named a managing director of JPMorgan Chase & Co. at age 29, she is considered a pioneer in the credit derivatives industry.
“During her 13 years in New York, Angie made some significant contributions to the investment community,” said Christopher Long, president of Palmer Square. “Her insights, investment perspective, and deep relationships across the senior levels of Wall Street will be essential in our continued pursuit of alternative investments that give our clients a greater level of portfolio diversification – and the reduced risk that goes along with it.”
