Attalus Capital Hires Credit Suisse Vet Silva

Sep 26 2012 | 7:47am ET

Philadelphia-based fund of funds Attalus Capital has tapped Joshua Silva as senior portfolio strategist.

Silva comes to Attalus from Credit Suisse in New York where he was a managing director of equity derivatives trading, responsible for overseeing the U.S. single-stock option flow derivatives trading team and managing its risk. Prior to this, he held positions within Credit Suisse’s single stock options flow trading and securitized derivatives groups in London. Silva began his investment career in 1995 as an options trader at CME with Société Générale.

In this newly created role at Attalus, Silva will work with the trading and risk management teams on risk calibration and benchmark replication for use with traditional and alternative investment strategies. Silva will also work with Attalus clients to help meet their growing demand for risk exposure aggregation, calibration, inflation protection and tail hedging.

“We are excited to announce the addition of Josh to the organization. He brings an extensive background in risk management and trading expertise to Attalus,” said Patrick C. Egan, president and chief investment officer. “Our clients are increasingly focusing on investment and risk management strategies that are designed for their particular portfolios. That is why Attalus has built the infrastructure needed to bring new and innovative investment solutions to the firm’s investors.”
