London-based fixed-income firm BlueBay Asset Management announced that it has hired Richard Blake as director of sales for the firm’s alternatives business.
According to a statement released earlier this week, Blake will primarily be responsible for building and expanding BlueBay’s alternative business.
Blake was most recently the head of investor relations at New York-based hedge fund firm Moore Capital Management where he focused on the sales and investor relations effort for the firm’s two flagship global macro funds.
Founded in 2001, BlueBay is one of Europe’s largest fixed income credit managers with over $53.9 billion in assets under management. The firm provides a combination of long-only and alternative debt strategies covering investment grade, high yield, convertibles and emerging markets.
