CRT Capital Group Overview
As an institutional broker-dealer for more than 20 years, CRT has consistently provided its clients with creative, idea-driven advice and solutions through targeted research and trading of High-Yield, Distressed, Convertible, and Emerging Market Debt Securities and Equities.
In June of 2009, a controlling interest in CRT was purchased by a group of investors led by Ron Kripalani (former President of Countrywide Capital Markets), Ben Carpenter and Jay Levine (former Co-CEOs and Co-Presidents of RBS Greenwich Capital). In addition to strengthening and expanding CRT’s legacy businesses, the firm’s new leadership has focused on building out two new important business lines to serve CRT’s institutional clients – the sales and trading of U.S. Treasuries and Securitized Products.
Recently, CRT raised over $225 million in capital from a group of investors led by Aquiline Capital Partners LLC, a New York-based private equity firm specializing in financial services.
CRT employs over 200 sales, trading, research, and support professionals who pride themselves on delivering superior execution and customer service to CRT’s over 1,200 institutional clients.
