Heptagon Capital, a USD3.3bn specialist asset management business set up in 2005 by former Morgan Stanley executives, has made two new senior hires – Alexander Gunz joins as a fund manager in the Asset Management division while Sebastian Hybbinette joins as vice president within the ultra high net worth advisory group, focusing on Scandinavia.

Gunz started his career in 1997 at Hoare Govett as an analyst before moving on to Credit Suisse where he became a top-ranked analyst in European telecoms from 2001-2004. He then became a senior salesperson at JP Morgan covering UK and European long-only and hedge-fund accounts before moving on to help set up the European equities business for Friedman Billings and Ramsey in London. Most recently he was at Edison Investment Research, an independent UK boutique, responsible for writing equity strategy and best ideas reports for institutional investors. Gunz has a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Worcester College, University of Oxford and a Masters in English Literature from Queen Mary, University of London.

Hybbinette was previously the Investment Director of a large UK based family office where he managed a portfolio of private equity, hedge funds, real estate and publicly traded assets. Prior to this, he was in the Mergers & Acquisitions investment banking division at Deutsche Bank in London where he was involved in transactions for major banks, insurance groups, asset managers and various other financial institutions. Prior to Deutsche Bank, Hybbinette worked as a trader for Avanza Bank and in Business Development for DHL. He holds a M.Sc. degree in Business and Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics.
