Pine River Capital Management is ramping up its effort to buy up bank assets.
The Minnetonka, Minn.-based hedge fund has hired James Lee to focus on acquiring securitized loans from banks forced to unload them by new global regulations, Bloomberg News reports. Lee is a former global head of structured credit trading at Barclays, and will serve as a strategist on its structured credit team.
The group manages about $950 million for Pine River, which has $13.9 billion in assets. The firm's structured-credit strategy focuses on deals of between $50 million and $100 million.
