Burren Capital Hires Gioanni To Head Investor Relations

Aug 14 2013 | 2:14pm ET

Gibraltor-based Burren Capital Advisors has tapped Centaurus Capital vet Sophie Gioanni as general counsel and head of investor relations.

Gioanni has more than 18 years' experience in financial services, having served most recently as partner, general counsel and head of investor relations at Centaurus.

In her new role at Burren, Gioanni will be responsible for general legal matters with a focus on broadening the investor base of the Burren Global Arbitrage Fund.

Said Burren CIO Andrew McGrath in a statement: “We are delighted Sophie has joined us and look forward to building new and closer relationships with institutional investors around the world”.

McGrath added that the past few months have witnessed “momentum increasing in the opportunity set particularly with regard to the announcement of substantial M&A deals in Europe,” particularly cross-border transactions. He said Burren expects to see further pick up in deal activity in Asia and North America.

“Overall,” said McGrath, “we are seeing several core cyclical drivers favorable to a broader M&A rebound, including an improving macro visibility and CEO confidence, high levels of cash on balance sheets, availability of credit and lower market volatility”
