Advent Capital hires Kris Haber as COO


Advent Capital Management, an investment management firm with USD8.3bn in assets under management, has appointed Kris T Haber as chief operating officer.

Haber will oversee the firm’s business development, investor relations and risk management departments as well as firm strategy and execution.
Haber will also serve as a member of the management committee and report to Tracy Maitland, Advent’s president and chief investment officer.
Haber has more than 20 years of experience in the investment business. Most recently, he served as CEO of Presidio Capital Group, a firm he co-founded with an investment team to implement infrastructure and facilitate growth for small fund managers.
Before this he was at Threadneedle Investments, where he served as global head of absolute return strategies and president of Threadneedle Investments North America. Previously, he spent approximately 14 years at Lazard Asset Management, rising to managing director and head of alternative investments, responsible for business development, strategy and distribution.
“I am very excited to have Kris as a member of the Advent team. With his exceptional track record in the investment field, he brings tremendous experience, unique insight and leadership that will make him an invaluable addition,” Maitland says. “Advent has experienced significant success in providing an array of investment solutions to its clients, resulting in our AUM growth. I am confident Kris will be an integral part of our firm’s continued momentum.”
Haber succeeds Osbert Hood as chief operating officer. Hood, former chairman and chief executive officer of MacKay Shields, came out of retirement mid-2012.
Hood will continue to work with Advent through May and will continue in a consultative capacity.
