Alternatives marketing and advisory firm Dexion Capital has launched its market making operations which will leverage off the group's existing distribution capabilities and research expertise.

Market making will be headed by Richard Crawford and Roy Martin. 

Crawford brings over 20 years' experience trading in the closed ended fund market for JP Morgan and Martin has also joined from the investment trust team at JP Morgan.

The team will initially make markets in about 50 listed funds in the hedge fund sector.

The launch is part of Dexion Capital's move to position itself as a full service provider to its investor client base in the primary and secondary markets.

Ana Haurie, managing director of Dexion Capital (pictured), says:  'Over the past nine years Dexion Capital has gained a strong reputation and presence in the hedge fund sector as a marketing and advisory specialist. Our extensive sales distribution network encompasses a significant proportion of banks, institutional asset managers and private client investment advisory firms within the UK and across Europe.  We have seen significant growth in listed alternative investment funds in recent years and believe that investors are in need of specialist capital market coverage in this area.

'Supported by our network of market intelligence and expertise we believe that Dexion is ideally positioned to address this demand.  The addition of an experienced market making team to our existing sales and analytical research capabilities enables us to gain a strong footing as a 'first call' niche provider in this sector.'
