Signal Capital Partners Strengthens Distressed Debt, Real Estate Teams

Dec 3 2015 | 8:56pm ET

Elad Shraga’s Signal Capital Partners has hired Colman McCarthy and Fredrik Metze to work in its real estate and credit funds, respecitvely, after raising more than $500 million in investor capital. 

The former head of Deutsche Bank’s structured finance business formed Signal in May with several former colleagues from the German bank, including Amit Jain and Gad Caspy. 

The London-based firm has raised more than $500 million to focus on special situation credit and real estate investments in Europe, according to Bloomberg. The asset gathering has occurred amid a difficult environment for smaller hedge funds seeking capital.

McCarthy was most recently at Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate, while Metze was a managing director in distressed debt for Fortress Investment Group in Europe. Metze will work primarily with the company’s credit fund while McCarthy joins Signal’ real estate fund.
