DellaCamera hires Elliott alum


DellaCamera Capital Management, an event-driven fund launched in New York on January 3, has added Elliott Associates alum Jeff Kaplan as senior portfolio manager.

Kaplan is now reunited with two former colleagues: Firm founder Ralph DellaCamera, who worked with Kaplan at Elliott, and DellaCamera partner Andy Kurtz, who worked with Kaplan at both Elliott and the hedge fund firm Spectrum Investment Partners.

Kaplan most recently served as a credit analyst and principal at Tricadia Capital. At DellaCamera, he will focus on the debt portion of the firm's portfolio, particularly first and second lien loans and distressed and special situations.
