Westchester Capital Management Expands Investment and Operations Teams

Jun 11 2015 | 1:56am ET

Westchester Capital Management, an investment adviser focusing on liquid alternative investment strategies, announced the addition of two new members to its team.

Michael Corigliano has joined WCM's Investment Management Team, fulfilling dual roles as analyst and trader; meanwhile, Amy Nazimiec has joined the Business Management and Operations team as Associate Compliance Officer. 

Both will be based in WCM’s Valhalla, New York office.

“We’ve expanded our suite of investment solutions as part of our long-term growth strategy, especially with the launch of several event–driven products over the past year, and adding talented professionals is essential to ensuring we continue to execute at highest level for our clients,” said Roy Behren, managing member and co-portfolio manager at Westchester Capital Management.

Corigliano began his career at Citigroup, later working as an equity derivatives trader for Capstone Investment Advisors and Rodman & Renshaw/Hudson Securities. Prior to joining WCM, he was an Equity Derivatives Portfolio Manager at Bell Curve Capital.

Nazimiec began her career in 2005 at BlackRock and developed her operations and compliance skills at Old Mutual Asset Management Trust Company. Prior to joining WCM, she was a Compliance Analyst at Towers Watson Investment Services.

“Michael’s expertise in event-driven investing and derivative strategies will enhance our ability to construct market neutral portfolios and structure alpha-generating trades,” said Michael Shannon, managing member and co-portfolio manager at Westchester Capital Management, “and Amy’s exceptional track record operating with some of the country’s largest financial firms will bolster our operations team.” 

Westchester Capital Management manages approximately $6 billion in assets through a variety of vehicles, including mutual funds, hedge funds, UCITS funds and variable insurance products. In 1989, the company launched the industry's first liquid alternative mutual fund dedicated to merger arbitrage.
