Vision Capital Advisors LLC, a New York investment advisory firm, has announced the hiring of Andrew Lutz, a 13-year veteran in institutional fixed-income trading and investing, to be a managing director.
Mr. Lutz is to fill a new post as head of all fixed-income initiatives at Vision and report to Adam Benowitz and Randy Cohen, the firm's co-founders, it said on Wednesday.
He joins Vision Capital after nearly 17 years at Susquehanna International Group, a privately held securities trading and investment firm.
