NEW YORK, US - Prytania Asset Management is pleased to announce that Fahd Basir joined the firm on April 2, 2018 as a Managing Director. Fahd’s broad structured credit experience over 14 years includes both agent and principal transactions across the capital structure over a wide variety of asset classes. He will be based in Prytania’s newly opened New York City office.

Previously, Fahd was a Director at 25 Capital Partners, where he was instrumental in launching a closed-end mortgage opportunities fund. Before that he was a Senior Vice President at Atlantic Asset Management and portfolio manager for its TALF Fund, where he managed a $1.1bn ABS portfolio. Prior to moving to the buy-side Fahd executed approximately $44 billion in asset-backed securitizations across various asset classes including residential mortgages, auto loans, student loans, credit cards, and esoteric assets at UBS and Bank of America.
