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.
