Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Copenhagen-headquartered Capital Four continues to strengthen its investment team in New York. The credit boutique has announced the hiring of three senior professionals in New York – Alex Basman, Jamie Burns, and Rob Lasner – bringing Capital Four’s US team to 14 professionals led by Jim Wiant.

“We are very excited to add Alex, Jamie and Rob to our team as we continue to build scale and capabilities at Capital Four US,” Jim Wiant, the CEO of Capital Four’s US arm, comments on the recent appointments. “We are very pleased to be adding experienced industry professionals to our established team,” adds Sandro Näf, the co-founder and CEO of Copenhagen-headquartered Capital Four. “The Capital Four US business continues to expand and serves a key role in our expanding investment capabilities.” Capital Four US manages $3 billion across credit strategies, including CLOs, traditional mandates and opportunistic mandates for institutional investors.

“We are very pleased to be adding experienced industry professionals to our established team.”

Rob Lasner joins Capital Four US as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance Officer to be responsible for all aspects of operations, finance and compliance. Most recently, Lasner was Head of Operations at Inherent Group, where he was responsible for operations across all of the firm’s investment strategies, which included hedge fund and long-only strategies involving high yield, bank loans, structured credit, and other asset classes. Lasner also brings experience from his time at Owl Creek Asset Management and Ziff Brothers Investments.

Alex Basman and Jamie Burns both join Capital Four as analysts. Basman comes from Allspring Global Investments (Wells Fargo Asset Management), where he was a senior analyst for more than 20 years. Basman also worked as an analyst at Aetos Capital, where he focused on hedge fund investment risk and analytics, and as an analyst at American Century Investments, where he focused on fixed income analytics and risk.

Burns, on the other hand, joins from Investcorp Credit Management, where he covered various sectors, including industrials and business services, as an analyst. He also covered the firm’s distressed, stressed and opportunistic investments. Prior to his role at Investcorp, Burns worked as a senior associate at American Capital, where he focused on covering industrials for CLOs, managed accounts and a business development company (BDC). He also worked as an associate in leveraged finance at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
