Florian de Sigy, former head of structured equity sales for Europe at Deutsche Bank, and Javier Rodriguez, previously senior strategist and head of strategic accounts at Barclays Global Investors’ client solutions group, have founded Gamma Finance.

The firm, which was recently granted Financial Services Authority approval, provides investors with services in the alternative investment space.

Through its client network, Gamma Finance facilitates and sources secondary market transactions on illiquid hedge funds.

“The opportunity is clear. Large numbers of funds have been gated and also side-pockets have been created over the last two years,” says de Sigy (pictured). “This process has left many investors with the urgency to reorganise their alternative portfolios, creating several disposals that are perceived as long-term investment opportunities by professional investors.”

The team also aims to identify unique investment strategies to help clients optimise their portfolio.

"Our complementary backgrounds in asset management and capital markets mean that we can advise funds on their positions, understanding their strategy," adds Rodriguez.
