CIFC adds MD to Investor Solutions Group
CIFC Asset Management (CIFC), a USD30 billion alternative credit specialist serving institutional investors globally, has appointed Rebecca Levy as a Managing Director in its Investor Solutions Group.
Most recently, Levy served as a Senior Portfolio Advisor at Aksia LLC. In this new role, Levy will strengthen CIFC’s Investor Solutions Group as the firm continues to scale its business, create tailored solutions for clients, and develop new institutional relationships. Based in New York, Levy reports to Jim Boothby, Managing Director and Global Co-Head of Business Development.
“We are pleased to welcome Rebecca to CIFC. Her expertise in portfolio construction and expansive network of institutional relationships will prove instrumental as we continue to develop customisable offerings that meet the evolving needs of investors,” says Steve Vaccaro, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of CIFC. “We have worked prudently to diversify CIFC’s credit platform and believe Rebecca will be an invaluable resource to our current clients on their investment programs, while articulating our differentiated approach to new investors globally.”
“CIFC has built a well-respected alternative investment platform across corporate, structured and opportunistic credit strategies through a solutions-oriented process and acute focus on risk,” adds Levy. “I am excited to help expand the firm’s institutional clientele in today’s low-interest rate environment where investors are seeking the creative, portfolio diversifying credit solutions that CIFC offers.”
Levy brings more than 20 years of experience across portfolio construction, strategy allocation, institutional sales, and business development to CIFC. Prior to joining Aksia LLC, Levy served as Vice President, Commodities Sales at Goldman Sachs and Vice President, Foreign Exchange & Commodities Sales at Barclays Capital and Lehman Brothers. She began her career at UBS Investment Bank. Levy holds a BA from Duke University and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
The addition of Levy to CIFC’s Investor Solutions Group follows the firm’s recent hiring of Tatyana Machado as Executive Director, Investor Solutions Group. Machado brings extensive investor services, onboarding and sales enablement knowledge to CIFC from her nearly two decades of experience in business development and client service at AQR Capital Management and BlackRock.
“The ongoing expansion of our talented team demonstrates strong momentum following our 15-year anniversary in 2020, as well as our commitment to continuing to deliver best-in-class service and results to clients for years to come,” Vaccaro says.
