July 11, 2014
Riverstone Holdings has hired a team of energy-focused leveraged finance professionals to spearhead the firm's expansion into credit and capital markets activities. Christopher Abbate, who will lead the team, has spent his entire 17-year career financing energy companies, mainly in the leveraged capital markets. Jamie Brodsky formerly worked at Nomura, as did Daniel Flannery. Based in Riverstone’s New York office, the team is exploring opportunities to make credit investments from the Riverstone platform as well as advise Riverstone portfolio companies and select third-party clients on capital structure optimization and access to the capital markets.
