MayerCap Names Chief Investment Officer

Oct 13 2006 | 10:20am ET

New York-based fund of funds firm MayerCap has named Eldon Mayer, the firm's co-founder, as chief investment officer. Alex Boguslavsky, portfolio manager of the firm's corporate financing fund, has joined the investment committee along with Mayer and Ron Panzier, a co-founder and chief risk officer.

Panzier commented that Eldon "is our most experienced hedge fund investor and macro thinker." He was CIO for many years at his former firm, Lynch & Mayer, Inc., where he managed and oversaw a number of hedge funds as well as over $6 billion of mid- and large-cap growth equities for institutional clients.

Panzier served at Lynch & Mayer as CFO and COO of the firm's hedge fund group.

MayerCap (formerly known as Mayer & Hoffman) manages The High Alpha Fund and The Corporate Financing Fund, and sub-advises a separately managed account on behalf of Comerica Bank and Munder Capital Management. The firm focuses on newer and specialized hedge funds.
