Two Harbors Investment Corp. (NYSE: TWO; NYSE MKT: TWO.WS) today announced the appointment of William Roth as Chief Investment Officer, effective January 1, 2013. In addition, Matthew Koeppen was promoted to Managing Director, and William Greenberg joins Two Harbors from UBS as a Managing Director.

Steven Kuhn, who has shared the role of Co-Chief Investment Officer with Mr. Roth over the past three years, intends to devote his full attention to his role with Pine River Capital Management L.P., the parent of the company’s external manager, where he serves as a Partner and the Head of Fixed Income Trading.

“We are delighted to congratulate Bill on his appointment as CIO. This is a natural transition for Bill and Steve, as Bill and his team have been instrumental to the superior security selection and economic returns of the Company over the past few years. We are confident that this bifurcation of duties will best serve all investors, both in Two Harbors and Pine River,” stated Thomas Siering, Two Harbors' President and Chief Executive Officer. “Bill and his team will continue to draw upon the extensive capabilities within Pine River, the external manager of Two Harbors, including close collaboration with Steve and the rest of the Pine River mortgage team.”

“We wish to sincerely thank Steve for his invaluable and dedicated service to Two Harbors,” said Mr. Siering. “We could not have built Two Harbors without Steve. We will be forever grateful for his many contributions.”

The company also announced today that Matthew Koeppen has been appointed Managing Director. "We are pleased to announce Matt’s promotion to Managing Director," stated Mr. Siering. “Matt has been an important member of the investment team, and has contributed significantly to our success since he joined Two Harbors in 2010.”

Prior to joining Two Harbors, Mr. Koeppen held a variety of positions with Black River Asset Management, which is a division of Cargill, Incorporated. Most recently, Mr. Koeppen served as a Managing Director of Business Development, where he was responsible for a variety of initiatives to diversify and grow assets under management. From 2003 to 2007, Mr. Koeppen was a Managing Director and Portfolio Manager for Black River Asset Management. In this role, he was responsible for managing a securitized products portfolio, including Agency RMBS, specified pools, TBAs, non-Agency RMBS, interest only securities, and other derivatives.
