Symphony Asset Management has named Anne B. Popkin as president, effective 12 July.

Popkin brings nearly 20 years of institutional experience to the firm.

She will assume responsibility for all non-investment activities at the firm, including business development, client service, operations, trade support, technology and compliance, and will report directly to Symphony’s chief investment officer and chief executive Gunther Stein.

"We are excited to welcome Anne as president of Symphony. She is a proven leader with a strong track record of success in the hedge fund industry. In addition to overseeing all operational and marketing activities, Anne will be responsible for growing our institutional presence globally,” says Stein.

"I am excited to join Gunther and the team at Symphony, which has an enviable position in the hedge fund industry, in addition to significant institutional client relationships. I was attracted to Symphony’s partnership culture, its strong and successful investment team with broad fixed income and equity expertise, their diverse product platform and ability to deliver customised investment solutions. I look forward to working with the team to build on its existing strong foundation,” adds Popkin.

Popkin was most recently principal, head of the New York office and a member of the global operating committee of BlueCrest Capital Management. While at Blue Crest, she led a fund raising and client services team and worked on new product development. She joined BlueCrest in 2007 to open its New York office.

Prior to her time at BlueCrest, Popkin was a managing director and head of Americas business development and investor relations of Lehman Brothers absolute return strategies, and director of North American business marketing and investor relations at Financial Risk Management.

In addition to her corporate work Popkin is president and board chair, since 2007, of 100 Women in Hedge Funds, the non-profit organisation committed to enhancing the industry through educational programming, professional leverage initiatives, and philanthropy.
