Dublin-based systemic investment manager Alder Capital has named former Friends First Life executive Brian Flanagan as the company’s new senior business development manager. 

In his new role, Flanagan will manage existing client relationships and promote the Alder alternative investment approach to both domestic and international investors, the company said on Friday. He will work through both the firm’s Dublin and London offices and will report to John Parkin, Alder’s head of product management.

Flanagan joins Alder after 15 years with Friends First Life Assurance in Dublin, serving for the last decade as the investment sales manager. He started his career in Japan, initially working for three years as a currency systems analyst with Fuji Bank in Tokyo and then five years as a senior currency options broker with the Tullett and Tokyo Group. Flanagan has the chartered alternative investment analyst designation.

Alder Capital was founded in 2000 by Mark Caslin. The company takes quantitative and systematic investment approaches aimed at generating attractive risk/return scenarios persistently uncorrelated to underlying markets. Assets under management are around $350 million, according to IASG.
