Sep 25 2017 | 6:09pm ET

Cowen Investment Management LLC, the asset management unit of global financial services company Cowen, has named former Reservoir Capital executive Elizabeth Flisser Rosman as managing director and head of strategy. 

In her new role, Rosman will draw on her deep experience in seeding and incubating alternative investment strategies to expand Cowen’s alternative investment management platform, the company said in a statement. She will develop both internal investment capabilities as well as pursue partnerships with outside managers.

Rosman has been sourcing, seeding and incubating alternative investment managers since 1999, when she joined hedge fund sponsor Capital Z and became president and partner. She most recently led new hedge fund manager development efforts at Reservoir Capital Group, a privately held investment company, Cowen added. She began her career as an analyst at Goldman Sachs & Co.

“We are extremely fortunate to have Elizabeth join Cowen as the firm continues to expand existing products, invest in managers and develop new investment vehicles relevant to Cowen’s sector expertise and the global environment,” said Fred Fraenkel, head of investment management and vice chairman of Cowen, in the statement. 

Founded in 1918 and based in New York, Cowen Group is a diversified financial services firm providing alternative asset management, investment banking, research, sales and trading and prime brokerage services through Cowen Investment Management, its alternative investment segment, and Cowen and Company, its broker-dealer unit.
