Diversified alternative credit manager BlueMountain Capital Management has named former Pine River executive Albert Selius as a portfolio manager specializing in insurance-linked securities (ILS).

The position is new, according to the company, and will strengthen BlueMountain’s presence in the insurance-linked asset class. Based in New York, Selius will work on asset analysis, underwriting, sourcing, and risk management across the ILS portfolio.

Beforehand, he was with UBS Investment Bank working on structuring and trading ILS instruments, and held prior stints at Swiss Re Capital Markets and Securis Investment Partners.

New York-based BlueMountain Capital Management was founded in 2003 by former JP Morgan executive Andrew Feldstein and ex-McKinsey senior consultant Stephen Siderow. The company is a multi-strategy absolute return manager with more than $21 billion in AUM deployed across credit, distressed, special situation, equity, structured finance and technical/arbitrage strategies.
