Pensions & Investments | Highland Capital Management adds marketer

Brian Rice joined credit manager Highland Capital Management as a marketer and managing director.

The New York-based position is new, confirmed Michelle Lam, a spokeswoman, in an e-mail.

He is responsible for developing relationships with institutional investors, investment consultants and wealth management platforms.

Mr. Rice was a marketer, partner and managing director in alternative investment manager Investcorp International’s New York office. Deborah Botwood Smith, an Investcorp spokeswoman, said in a voice-mail message that she could not comment about Mr. Rice’s replacement because of company policy.

Highland Capital managed $23 billion as of Dec. 31 in credit strategies, including hedge funds, long-only funds, distressed private equity and collateralized loan obligation structured vehicles.
