Pine River Capital Management
Pine River Capital Management L.P. was founded in early 2002 by Brian Taylor. Brian's relative value trading experience began in the late 1980s in the Financial Markets Department at Cargill. He founded Pine River to pursue opportunities in global relative value trading and three former colleagues; Jeff Stolt (CFO), Aaron Yeary (Head of US Relative Value Trading) and Nikhil Mankodi (Head of International Trading) joined him shortly after the launch. Tom Siering, another former colleague, joined the firm in 2006 as Head of Fundamental Strategies. Franklin Parlamis joined Pine River in 2007 as the Head of US Convertibles Trading and Steve Kuhn joined in 2008 as the Head of Fixed Income Trading. As the firm grew, teams were built around each of the strategy heads along with significant investments in infrastructure.
Beginning in 2002, the firm was located in Pine River, Minnesota, and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2003. In 2007, Pine River outgrew its headquarters and relocated to Minnetonka, Minnesota, just a few miles west of downtown Minneapolis. Pine River opened research and trading offices in London in 2004, Hong Kong in 2007 and San Francisco and New York in 2008. In the summer of 2010, Pine River opened a research office in Beijing. The Minnetonka office remains our headquarters and houses all of the control functions including: risk, accounting, settlements, treasury, client service, compliance, human resources and our internal counsel.
