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 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.

"This steady expansion provides access for an even broader range of market participants to diversify portfolios and enter the alternative investment arena."
