Jun 10 2014 | 10:04am ET

Finisterre Capital has added a second manager to its UCITS-compliant emerging-markets debt fund.

The London-based firm said yesterday that Kevin Bespolka was named co-portfolio manager for its US$365 million EM Debt Fund. Bespolka joins from Napier Park Global Capital, the former Citi Capital Advisors, where he was CEO and chief investment officer of its Global Macro Fund.

Bespolka will work alongside Christopher Watson. The new hire will focus on local markets, foreign exchange and rates, allowing Watson to focus on his expertise, emerging market sovereign and corporate credit.

“Kevin has a strong track record built over 30 years investing in the markets and we are delighted that he has joined us during this period of strong client demand for absolute return investing in the attractive asset class of emerging market debt,” Finisterre CIO Paul Crean said.

Before joining CCA, Bespolka worked at Old Lane Partners and Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein.
