Prior to joining CIFC, Mr. Sokolowski was a portfolio manager with Lucidus Capital Partners, a credit trading firm that was spun out of Caxton Associates in 2011.  Preceding Lucidus, Mr. Sokolowski was a credit portfolio manager and trader at Caxton.  Prior to joining Caxton in 2006, Mr. Sokolowski was a Managing Director with JPMorgan where he founded and managed the European par and distressed loan trading business in London. 

"We are delighted to have Stan complement our highly experienced team given his proven ability to express risk agnostically across capital structure through fundamental credit analysis and understanding of macro, rates, inflation, and hedging," said Steve Vaccaro, Chief Investment Officer.  "Stan shares a common lineage with us and will be a key part of our expansion as a diversified, alternative credit manager." 

"I am very excited to join CIFC and be a part of its future," said Mr. Sokolowski. "I was attracted to the Firm given its cohesive investment and management team, proven investment model, differentiated sourcing, and institutionalized credit infrastructure. Credit strategies continue to provide investors disproportionate returns relative to risk. Our goal will be to serve as an extension of investors' resources as it relates to liquid and illiquid credit space through creation of bespoke and co-mingled solutions, which allow investors access to our platform".

Stan joined Manufacturers Hanover in 1991 and completed Chemical Bank's MBA Capital Markets and Credit Training Program in 1994.  He held various positions in New York and London throughout the Capital Markets, Sales and Trading, Investment Banking and Emerging Markets businesses of JPMorgan's predecessor organizations.  Mr. Sokolowski holds a B.A. in Finance from Michigan State University.
