Los Angeles-based investment management firm Ivory Investment Management has appointed Craig Pollak as head of institutional marketing.
Pollak, who will be based in Ivory’s New York office, will be responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with institutional investors.
“We are pleased to welcome Craig back to the Ivory team,” says Curtis Macnguyen, Ivory’s founder and head portfolio manager. “Craig brings a wealth of knowledge to the firm as our Head of Institutional Marketing and we are fortunate to have him rejoin to broaden our capabilities and visibility with institutional investors especially pension funds, endowments and foundations. There is significant renewed interest in long/short equity investment strategies and Ivory is well positioned to continue to deliver for our investors.”
“I am pleased to return to Ivory and work alongside our growing team of world class professionals,” says Pollak. “I hope to be a valuable member of the Ivory team and use my industry experience to further the firm’s success.”
Pollak joins Ivory from Guggenheim Fund Solutions, where he was managing director and head of sales for the Americas. Before that, Pollak was at Ivory from 2006 to 2011, serving in a substantially similar role, and prior to that he was a vice president of client strategies at Morgan Stanley. Pollak has worked closely with Macnguyen and the team at Ivory since 2003.
