I started Ferrata Capital Management several years ago as an Event Driven Fund. I started my career at Goldman Sachs and then moved to Chase/JP Morgan where I worked in a fixed income, investment banking and leveraged finance. I then spent time working in Swiss Re's acquisition arm before starting Ferrata. So unlike most Hedge Fund managers who were traders or research analysts, my background is very different and diverse which I believe is a benefit! Recently, Ferrata has added a Restructuring Advisory arm and Principal Investment Arm which is separate from the investment side. I believe there are enormous opportunities presently in the market for these services based on what has happened over the past two years! You are seeing a convergence in the hedge fund and private equity sectors. For example, Blackstone having bought a distressed fund and TPG a large private equity firm has a hedge fund arm and certain hedge funds have added Private Equity personnel! Presently, there are many opportunities for Ferrata to capitalize on with all the issues companies are facing in a difficult economic landscape! It is easy to make money in the market when everything is positive - the smart investors are the ones who take the road less traveled and can unlock value!
