Tennenbaum Hires Ex-Treasury Economist Chief

Apr 10 2008 | 9:25am ET

Alternative asset management firm Tennenbaum Capital Partners has hired Marvin Barth as chief investment strategist.

Barth previously served as the chief economist for international affairs at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Prior to joining the Treasury Department, Barth served as a global currency economist at Citigroup Global Markets in London, where he advised institutional investors, hedge funds and corporate clients on investment and hedging decisions in foreign exchange and fixed income markets.

“As a chief investment strategist, Marvin will help us take full advantage of proprietary and public information already at our fingertips to identify attractive investment opportunities,” said Michael Tennenbaum, senior managing partner.

“Marvin will bolster our ability to synthesize the flow of proprietary information from our portfolio companies, economic statistics from outside sources and capital market information from our trading desk to evaluate the opportunities and risks of potential investments.”

Santa Monica, California-based Tennenbaum Capital manages approximately $7 billion in assets.
