Bandon Snags Ex-Russell Director
January 31, 2013
Bandon Capital Management has hired Whitney Dow as Managing Director, responsible for spearheading the firm’s marketing and relationship management efforts.
Previously, Dow spent nearly six years as a Director with Russell Investments, responsible for the expansion of its distribution footprint in the U.S. by building strategic relationships with national, regional, and independent broker-dealers and other intermediaries.
Bandon’s founder and CIO Bill Woodruff said Dow‘s hiring is a testament to the growing relevance and importance of the alternative mutual fund sector of the investment management industry.
“The demand for alternative, non-correlated or idiosyncratic-sourced returns in convenient delivery vehicles like mutual funds is intensifying, and to have a unique long-short debt strategy that just celebrated its two-year anniversary puts us in the right place at the right time,” said Woodruff, in a statement.
Portland, Oregon-based Bandon currently manages the Bandon Isolated Alpha Fixed Income Fund (BANIX), a long-short fixed income mutual fund.
