With Eye on Alternatives, BlueBay Hires Sales Director

Jan 7 2015 | 12:53pm ET

In an effort to boost growth in its alternatives business, fixed-income asset manager BlueBay Asset Management has hired Katherine Wentrup-Estupinan to a new role as a sales director.

“Katherine’s comprehensive experience of marketing within the alternatives space will help strengthen our existing sales efforts,” said BlueBay partner and head of sales Mattias Højmark-Jensen. “Her insight and analysis is certain to enhance the effectiveness of the marketing and distribution of our alternatives strategies.”

Wentrup-Estupinan will be departing Strategic Investments Group, a boutique alternative investments advisory firm. During her tenure at the firm, she led business development efforts and investor relations across Southern Europe.

Prior to her time at Strategic Investments Group, she worked in a number of business development roles at Alpha4x Asset Management, HSBC Global Asset Management, and HSBC Securities Inc. 
BlueBay currently has $65.8 billion of assets under management, including about $15 billion in alternatives, according to a company statement. In September, the company bolstered its leveraged finance team with the addition of Kerry-Hugh-Jones as a portfolio manager.

Hugh-Jones was a former executive at Eclectica Asset Management.
