"We are thrilled to have Andrew join the team at an inflection point for the firm," said Timothy Lyne, CEO of Antares Capital. “His experience and expertise across investment management and trading will be an asset to our growing Liquid Credit business, which is supported by the strength and infrastructure of our existing middle market origination and CLO platforms. Andrew’s addition underpins our expansion beyond our leading middle market private debt strategy to become a full-scale asset manager.”
