Gamma Finance Taps Think-Tank Vet As COO

Jan 19 2012 | 8:08am ET

Hedge fund secondary market brokerage and advisory firm Gamma Finance has appointed Miroslaw Izienicki as chief operating officer.

Izienicki comes to Gamma from the think tank and consultancy Fifth Capital, where he served as managing director. Prior to Fifth Capital, Miroslaw was head of corporate finance at Nikko Europe.

Said Izienicki in a statement: “This is an exciting time to be joining Gamma Finance. Gamma is well positioned to take advantage of its leading position in the market and to develop its business across a number of fronts.”
 
London-based Gamma Finance recently launched an advisory business to complement its existing intermediary business in the secondary market for illiquid hedge funds.

“We are seeing increasing deal flow on the intermediary side, whilst the advisory business is also developing rapidly. With both sides of our business expanding, we need to have the right people in place to successfully manage that growth,” says Florian de Sigy, founder and managing partner of Gamma Finance, in a statement. “Miroslaw is a high-caliber individual with an excellent record in this area, and we are delighted to be able to add his expertise to our team.”
