Aladdin Capital Management UK hired Mark Atmore for its sales and trading division .
Aladdin has over $12.4 billion of assets under management and is now growing its capital markets business.
Atmore, who has over 19 years experience from Bear Stearns and Nomura, joins Aladdin’s sales and trading division led by Michael Gibbons, Aladdin's sales and trading head who joined the company in March 2009.
The sales and trading division originates and distributes across all asset classes. The division will focus primarily on cash markets and client facilitation, helping clients to trade.
“We will particularly concentrate on areas of stress, including asset-backed securities and distressed financials, driven by the firm’s deep credit expertise,” Gibbons said.
Aladdin's capital markets business trades debt and builds the firm's investment-banking and advisory business while managing money.
