PAAMCO Taps 4 New Partners

Jan 14 2014 | 8:54am ET

Irvine, Cali.-based fund of hedge funds firm Pacific Alternative Asset Management Company has named four new partners.

Newly promoted to the partnership are Ronan Cosgrave, Putri Pascualy, Anne-Gaelle Pouille and Jeffrey Willardson. All four are based in PAAMCO’s Irvine office. 

In addition to their new status as partners, the four share another trait in common: all joined PAAMCO after completing MBAs.

Cosgrave, sector specialist for convertible bond hedging, joined PAAMCO in 2005 after completing his MBA having previously been an engineer at IBM.

Pascualy, senior credit strategist, joined the firm in 2006 after completing her MBA; prior to that she was an economist at Cornerstone.

Pouille, portfolio manager for PAAMCO’s Pacific Corporate Opportunities commingled fund and a member of the portfolio construction group, joined PAAMCO in 2007 after completing her MBA; prior to that she was at UBS.

Willardson, a member of PAAMCO’s portfolio construction group and a portfolio manager in the portfolio solutions group, joined PAAMCO in 2007 after completing his MBA having previously worked at Goldman Sachs.

Jane Buchan, PAAMCO CEO, said in a statement: “Ronan, Putri, Anne-Gaelle and Jeff have been instrumental in developing PAAMCO’s portfolio management capabilities and client relationships and it is a pleasure to welcome them to our partnership. All four of this year’s new partners came through our associate program and it is rewarding to see the results of the many years of training that they have undergone. PAAMCO remains one of the few firms in our sector that is broadly owned and controlled by our senior professionals. We continue to think that this partnership structure helps us to best align our interests with those of our clients.”

The appointments bring the total number of active partners at PAAMCO to 18.
