Gamma Finance, the leading provider of solutions-based services for secondary market transactions in illiquid hedge fund assets, has appointed Benjamin Keefe as director of its new Investment Advisory business.  This additional business line provides a complementary range of services and solutions to Gamma Finance’s buy-side and sell-side clients.

Prior to joining Gamma Finance, Benjamin was with UBS Investment Bank where he was a director responsible for the holistic risk assessments of new business initiatives and complex trades.

Between 2006 and 2009 Benjamin was a member of the investment committee at Nedgroup Investments where he advised on the management of $650m hedge fund and long-only funds, with a specific focus upon illiquid investment opportunities. Prior to this Benjamin was a hedge fund analyst with HSBC Investment Bank between 2001 and 2006.  He began his career at Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs, having graduated with LLB Law from the University of Exeter.

Florian de Sigy, founder and managing partner of Gamma Finance, commented “This is a significant step for Gamma Finance as we look to grow our business. Ben brings a wealth of experience, particularly in hedge fund analysis and due diligence, and his fund management expertise will add another dimension to our offering. The secondary market for illiquid assets has evolved considerably since the height of the financial crisis, and Ben’s hire will enable us to deliver new and innovative solutions for buyers and sellers of illiquid hedge fund assets.”

Benjamin Keefe said “This is an exciting time to be joining Gamma Finance, which is a pioneer in this sector. This opportunity is unique as it will allow us to integrate my experience in asset management and investment banking with Gamma Finance’s expertise in the secondary markets.”
