BlueMountain Capital Management adds four credit analysts

RELATED TOPICS​

BlueMountain Capital Management has expanded its fundamental credit research team with the hiring of four credit research analysts.

Led by head of research Scott Lessing, the team uses a disciplined approach to fundamental analysis to uncover relative value throughout the capital structure. 
 
Agata Andrevski will lead European distressed research. Andrevski will join BlueMountain after a period of leave from Camulos Capital, where she served as senior credit analyst, focused on European distressed, high yield and leveraged loans. Prior to joining Camulos, she was a credit analyst with Soros Fund Management.
 
Michael Kass, who joins BlueMountain in New York from 3-Sigma Value Management, brings experience both in restructuring investing and advisory, skills which he honed during previous positions at Lehman Brothers, Miller Buckfire, and McKinsey.

Omar Vaishnavi, a US distressed company specialist, joins the firm from SilverPoint Capital, where he focused primarily on healthcare after beginning his career with UBS. 
 
Vincent Cooper, who rejoins BlueMountain out of London, will cover financials. He is an expert in the capital structures of European financial institutions. Earlier in his career, he co-authored research reports on bank Tier 1 capital instruments while at Barclays Capital, where he was a sell-side analyst covering Southern-European banks and insurance companies.

‘BlueMountain aspires to build the leading, fundamentally-driven, cross-capital structure research team among credit-focused asset managers,’ says Lessing. ‘We relentlessly pursue distinctive insight through collaboration among analysts with deep expertise, who focus in specific industry sectors, particular research disciplines and geographies.’ 

With these additions, the fundamental credit research team has now reached 17 members. The firm plans to continue expanding in both London and New York.
