Bandon Capital Hired Russell Vet To Lead Marketing Efforts

Feb 1 2013 | 11:29am ET

Bandon Capital Management has hired Whitney Dow to spearhead the firm’s marketing and relationship management efforts.

Dow brings to Bandon over 15 years of investment management experience in marketing, business development, and relationship management. Most significantly, he spent nearly six years as a director with Russell Investments, responsible for the expansion of its distribution footprint in the U.S. by building strategic relationships with national, regional, and independent broker-dealers and other intermediaries.

Bandon’s founder and chief investment officer Bill Woodruff commented, “In continuing to build our core management team, we are extremely pleased to have someone of Whitney’s caliber join the firm...The demand for alternative, non-correlated or idiosyncratic-sourced returns in convenient delivery vehicles like mutual funds is intensifying, and to have a unique long-short debt strategy that just celebrated its two-year anniversary puts us in the right place at the right time.”

Dow added, “The Bandon Isolated Alpha Fixed Income Fund solves very specific needs expressed quite vocally by the financial services marketplace – the desire for liquid alternative investment strategies to diversify portfolios, the desire for access to customized strategies from top-caliber investment managers, and a track record of proven results during periods of rising rates and market stress. This approach is a timely option for advisors and investors seeking meaningful diversification and uncorrelated returns from their fixed income allocations.”

Bandon Capital Management is a Portland, Oregon-based, privately held investment management firm founded to provide investment solutions to financial intermediaries that deliver non-correlated, absolute returns regardless of market direction. Bandon identifies institutional quality alternative strategies that can be implemented in democratized vehicle structures.
