Whitebox Advisors, a $2.3 billion asset manager based in Minneapolis, Minnesota has crossed the pond—the firm opened an office in London this week.
Industry vet Simon Waxley joins the Whitebox UK office as senior portfolio manager; he will work closely with Whitebox’s existing portfolio managers and global trading heads.
Waxley comes to Whitebox from W Partners in London, where he focused on event driven, special situations primarily in Europe and Asia. Prior to W Partners, Waxley served as managing director for Perry Partners and managing director for Elliott Associates, among other positions.
“We are excited to open the London office and to have someone as renowned as Simon Waxley on board,” said Whitebox Advisors founder and CEO, Andrew Redleaf. “Simon’s industry expertise and presence on the ground will be an invaluable asset as we explore European opportunities.”
In addition to its London office and Minneapolis headquarters, Whitebox, has offices in Austin, Tex. and Singapore.
