GCM Grosvenor Adds Amy Wierenga As Chief Risk Officer

GCM Grosvenor has hired Amy Wierenga as Chief Risk Officer. Wierenga will report to Fred Pollock, GCM Grosvenor's Chief Investment Officer, and be responsible for risk management in support of the firm's global alternatives investment activities. In this capacity, Wierenga will oversee risk underwriting on new investments as well as risk associated with portfolio construction, and will contribute to a continued elevation of the firm's overall risk analytics framework. Wierenga will also join the firm's investment committees, which approve investment activity across the hedge fund, credit, private equity, infrastructure and real estate strategies.

Wierenga brings more than 20 years of experience to her new role. She joins GCM Grosvenor from Blue Mountain Capital Management, where she spent 12 years in a variety of roles, most recently as Chief Risk Officer.

"The breadth and complexity of our business requires a highly thoughtful and disciplined approach to risk management," said Jon Levin, GCM Grosvenor's President. "Amy brings the necessary experience and vision to advance our risk management efforts across our entire platform and help us deliver comprehensive investment solutions to clients with efficiency and transparency."

"I am excited to join the GCM Grosvenor team," said Wierenga. "I see opportunities to add value from day one, particularly in the current market environment, and I look forward to continuing to build upon the robust risk management framework that the firm has in place today."
