London-based residential mortgage market specialist WyeTree Asset Management has hired Yana Kramer as an executive director of investor relations.
Kramer, with 12 years’ experience in banking and hedge funds, was most recently head of marketing for a New York-based hedge fund. Prior to this, she spent several years at Credit Suisse and Barclays Capital in fixed income capital markets. She switched to the alternative assets market in 2003, spending the following six years in structured hedge fund derivatives working with fund of funds, family offices and other private and institutional investors.
Founded in 2007, WyeTree is managed by Mike Chacos (founder and CEO) and Judith Sciamma (managing director-portfolio manager), with infrastructure support from Challenger Limited, an Australian-based life and funds management company with $25 billion under management.
WyeTree’s RRETRO hedge fund, launched in 2008, invests globally in assets linked to residential mortgages and residential real estate. RRETRO was seeded by SkyBridge Capital which maintains “an ongoing and close working relationship with WyeTree.”
