Boston-based Robeco subsidiary Weiss, Peck & Greer has named Peter Lupoff, a former partner of now-defunct hedge fund Azura Capital Partners, as a principal and senior portfolio manager.
In his new role, Lupoff will work with the firm's events driven strategy team and will oversee distressed, stressed and out-of-favor companies, said Erin Heggerick, Robeco spokeswoman.
Azura Capital closed earlier this year, reportedly as a result of poor performance and failure to raise capital. Weiss, Peck & Greer currently manages aproximatly $14.5 billion in assets in separate accounts, commingled trusts and a family of mutual funds.
