Elementum Advisors has promoted Paul Barker to Principal & Portfolio Manager and Chris Cebula to Portfolio Manager, effective 1 February, 2016.
Barker joined the firm as a Catastrophe Modeling Analyst in 2011. He subsequently moved to Elementum’s Bermuda office in 2014 and transitioned to portfolio management with a focus on portfolio construction, hedging, and analysis of collateralized reinsurance investments.
Rettino, Founding Principal & Portfolio Manager, says: “Paul's commitment and leadership have been instrumental in improving our portfolio construction tools and processes. His efforts across multiple areas have benefited the firm greatly.”
Cebula joined Elementum in 2010 as an Analyst and quickly rose through the investment ranks before assuming the responsibility as the firm’s primary catastrophe bond trader in October 2013. Chris has also assumed a lead role in security selection and has enhanced Elementum’s trading techniques and tools over recent years.
“As the principal trader of cat bonds, Chris has identified and executed numerous trade ideas that have generated significant opportunities across Elementum-managed portfolios,” says John DeCaro, Founding Principal & Portfolio Manager.
