The promotions mark the latest personnel news at the specialist, which has come as activity in the NAV lending space has taken off amid turbulence in the leveraged loan market and severe supply constraints in subscription credit lines.

Last month, the 17Capital named Alejandro Hernandez as its inaugural head of investor relations for Canada and Latin America. The firm also announced 13 promotions in February.
