AM Investment Taps Citigroup Vet. To Manage Volatility Strategy

Jan 27 2009 | 8:31pm ET

AM Investment Partners, an $800 million hedge fund firm managing three market-neutral single strategies, has hired Stephen Thurer as a senior portfolio manager for the firm’s volatility arbitrage strategy.

Thurer formerly served as a managing director in equity derivatives trading at Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Bear Stearns. At AMIP, Thurer will primarily focus on U.S. equity derivatives in the energy, commodities, infrastructure and industrial sectors.

“While we are experiencing the most dramatic cycle of any living investors’ career, the team we have assembled is well-positioned and prepared for all market conditions: upward-trending volatility markets as we saw in 2008, extreme vacillations of volatility that we expect to see over the next 18 to 24 months and future calmer markets as our economy moves toward recovery,” said Mark Friedman, co-founder of AMIP.
