Palmer Square Capital Management announced Wednesday the appointment of Angie Knighton Long as the firm’s chief investment officer.
Prior to joining Palmer Square, based in Leawood, Kan., Ms. Long worked for JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York, where she held a variety of management and trading roles, including deputy head of credit trading for North America, head of high-yield trading, and head of credit derivatives trading.
“During her 13 years in New York, Angie made some significant contributions to the investment community,” said Christopher D. Long, Ms. Long's husband and president and founder of Palmer Square, in a statement. “Her insights, investment perspective, and deep relationships across the senior levels of Wall Street will be essential in our continued pursuit of alternative investments that give our clients a greater level of portfolio diversification – and the reduced risk that goes along with it.”
The Longs met as fellow economics majors at Princeton University. As a member of Palmer Square’s Investment Committee, Ms. Long has key responsibilities for all investment-related activities, with a particular focus on portfolio and risk management.
