New York-based alternative asset manager SkyBridge Capital has made five hires for its sales team.

SkyBridge, which manages or advises on assets worth approximately $6.2 billion (as of February 29, 2012) has expanded its global distribution team with the additions of Justin M. Arasin (New York) and John L. Langston (Houston) as directors, two additional New York-based support staff members and Henrik P. Molin (Zurich) as director of marketing for Europe.

Arasin comes to SkyBridge from Arden Asset Management, where he served as an executive director on the client service and development team.  Prior to a merger with Arden in 2011, he was a regional director at Robeco-Sage.

Langston, with 13 years' experience in financial services, was formerly national sales director for Salient Partners, responsible for distributing registered alternative investment funds modeled after large university endowments.

Molin’s CV includes tenures as head of development at fund of hedge funds FQS Capital Management, head of business development at Ironshield Capital, international business development director at Paris-based Systeia Capital Management and head of trading at ORN Capital.

“Due to the demand for our hedge fund product portfolio, we are strategically bolstering our global distribution team with the addition of new team members and platform partnerships," said Ray Nolte, managing partner and chief investment officer at SkyBridge, in a statement. "This steady expansion provides access for an even broader range of market participants to diversify portfolios and enter the alternative investment arena."
