Seix Investment Advisors hires MD of structured capital markets


Seix Investment Advisors has hired John Wu as Managing Director of Structured Capital Markets for the firm's Leveraged Finance platform. Wu will play a key role in expanding the firm's Collateralised Loan Obligation (CLO) business.

"Expanding the firm's CLO business is a strategic priority for both Seix and RidgeWorth," says Ashi S Parikh, RidgeWorth Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. "We are pleased for John to join the team as we align our resources to support this initiative. He brings the energy and experience to our firm that is critical in today's marketplace."
Wu joins Seix from CIFC Asset Management where he served as Co-Head of Structured Products, Senior Portfolio Manager and Managing Director. In that capacity, he oversaw various structured product portfolios and managed 15 CLO new issue/refinancing transactions. He also served as Head of CLO Structuring at UBS and prior to that, Director in Global Credit Trading at Deutsche Bank, where he was responsible for CLO banking, structuring and origination. He began his credit career at Goldman Sachs in the Credit Derivatives group.  In addition to CLOs, he has also created financing structures for credit hedge funds, business development companies (BDCs) and asset managers, combining flexible leverage and term financing for long-short credit management.
"John has 15 years of experience in credit and structuring, most recently at CIFC, where he was an integral member of their top 10 ranked CLO team," says George Goudelias, Managing Director, Head of Leveraged Finance and Senior Portfolio Manager at Seix. "John is well-known and highly respected in the CLO marketplace and his breadth and depth of experience will make him a great addition to the team."
Wu earned an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management and a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Yale University.  He also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
