Havens Adds Two Execs

Jul 25 2007 | 11:44am ET

Havens Advisors, a $375 million New York-based hedge fund manager, has added two executives to its management team.

Allison Bellini joins the firm as managing director and portfolio manager on the high-yield and special situations debt team, and Michael Burcher as vice president and equities trader. 

Bellini is responsible for pursuing trading opportunities on the debt side of Havens’ portfolio.  She joins from CRT Capital Group, where she spent 11 years as senior vice president, principal and distressed/high-yield/special situations debt analyst covering a wide variety of industries.
 
Burcher began his financial career in 1997 at Jack White & Co. as a stock, options, mutual funds, commodities and U.S. Treasuries trader for the broker/dealer’s retail clients. He joined Jeffries & Co. one year later as a trading assistant responsible for managing the trade settlement team, and later he became an institutional equity position trader, executing proprietary orders using the firm’s capital, managing significant order flow, and training junior traders. 

 “We have doubled our assets under management over the past year and are scaling our team to match that growth as well as to handle the investment opportunities that we see daily,” said Nancy Havens, president and portfolio manager, Havens Advisors.  “Allison and Michael will play key roles at the firm as we continue to grow.”
