Double appointment by AIG

AIG Global Investment Group (AIGGIG) has added two new faces to its European Leveraged Loan Group in the shape of Margarita Sabarny and Rebecca Reeve.

Both will join the London office, with Sabarny joining as a credit analyst from Moody’s and Reeve as a business analyst from ABN Amro.

They will both report to group head Simon Hillard, who joined AIGGIG in 2006. Other members of the team include Julie Bothamley, who is co-portfolio manager with Hillard, Adeel Shafiqullah, vice president (who joined from AIGGIG’s Los Angeles Leveraged Loan Group) and Giuseppe Schermi, vice president (who was formerly with SanPaolo IMI in Milan).

AIGGIG closed its first European leveraged loan CLO, Euro – Galaxy CLO, in September 2006 and plans to grow its European CLO business. It is also expected that AIGGIG will commence the purchasing of European leveraged loans for general and separate accounts in the near term.
