Alexander Ineichen was named senior strategist by German money manager and investment bank Prime Capital.
He will be responsible for the research and development of new alternative investment strategies, including hedge funds, commodities, energy and credit opportunities. The position is new, said Anette Walker, a Prime Capital spokeswoman.
Mr. Ineichen will continue to run Ineichen Research and Management, a specialist hedge fund and research company that he founded last year, Ms. Walker said. He started the research firm after leaving UBS Global Asset Management in April as senior investment officer-alternative investment solutions and head of industry research for its hedge fund platform.
