New York-based hedge fund Twin Capital Management has appointed Michael Horgan as vice president.
In his new position, he will also serve as co-portfolio manager of event-driven/special situations along with Brett Patelsky, senior vice president, and David Simon, founder and chief executive of Twin.
Horgan has more than seven years of financial experience, primarily in the event-driven space. He previously served as a vice president of Twin for three years identifying, analysing and investing in event-driven situations across industries in the US, UK and Western Europe.
“We’re delighted to welcome Mike back to Twin. His experience as an analyst and his past experience at Twin will allow Mike to make a seamless and positive contribution to our team,” says Simon. “We continue to make opportunistic hires, such as Mike, as a part of our long term plan for controlled growth both in assets and infrastructure.”
For the past two years Horgan served as co-portfolio manager of special situation strategies for Guggenheim Global Trading and oversaw an event-driven portfolio. His other experience includes serving as an analyst in the arbitrage and special situations group for Satellite Asset Management and as an investment banking analyst in the financial sponsor group of Banc of America Securities.
