Angel Oak Capital Advisors (Angel Oak), an investment management firm specialising in value-driven structured credit, has appointed Abhi Kane as managing director and alternative investment strategist. Kane’s primary focus will be supporting Angel Oak’s portfolio managers and expanding the firm’s alternative investment strategies, both public and private, to a broader range of investors.
Working from the New York City office, Kane will service family offices, wealth management platforms and other institutional investors to ensure they have the optimal solutions for their alternative investment needs.

“Having watched Angel Oak’s presence grow over the years, I am excited to add to that momentum,” says Kane. “I’ve dedicated my career to working with clients, portfolio managers and strategists to deliver alternative investment solutions suited to any investor’s needs, and I can’t wait to offer my assistance to our portfolio managers in the field and office.”
