Investment Management is done in-house by the founder of Axen Management, Nicholas Street. Debt Advisory & Placement are shared with partners on an adhoc, situation-by-situation basis. Most non-essential functions are distributed and outsourced.
Nicholas has over 26 years of experience working across both developed and emerging currency and credit markets in trading and leveraged credit capital markets and syndicate.
With more than 12 years focusing on the buy side running a similar strategy, Nicholas has consistently generated high risk-adjusted returns with low correlation to other asset classes.
Prior to the buy side, Nicholas worked on the sell side in New York and London for Credit Suisse in spot currency trading and leveraged credit capital markets/syndicate, Royal Bank of Scotland in leveraged credit capital markets/syndicate and high yield directional flow trading and BNP Paribas in high yield/emerging markets/syndicate.
The following efforts are the foundation of both Axen’s investment management and debt advisory/placement offerings:
Private loans and public bonds markets
Capital markets, syndicate and trading
Developed markets and emerging markets
Investment grade and non-investment grade
Mr. Street received his Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Southern California and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He also completed Credit Suisse’s Corporate Finance & Capital Markets Training Program.
