US - Amy Ryan has rejoined Fred Alger Management as senior vice president and senior analyst.
Ryan, who officially starts on October 15, rejoins the firm from Prudential Securities (no relation to the UK insurer). At Prudential Securities, Ryan was first vice president, senior retail trade analyst, a post she has held since 1992.
Fred Alger, chairman and president of the firm, said of Ryan's return: Amy Ryan has distinguished herself as one of the leading analysts on Wall Street and we are very pleased that she is returning to our firm. Amy's formidable talents are complemented by her leadership skills, and we look forward to her rejoining us as a colleague and know that she will contribute much as a teacher and mentor to the members of our research team.
Ryan began her career in asset management at Fred Alger, when she joined as a research associate in 1987. During her first spell at the firm she held the titles of associate analyst, analyst and senior analyst.
While I will miss my friends and colleagues at Prudential, the decision to rejoin Fred Alger Management is like coming home for me, Ryan said. I am very excited to rejoin Fred Alger Management and look forward to working with both former and new colleagues.
Ryan is the second Fred Alger alumni to return to the firm. Dave Hyun, formerly portfolio manager at OppenheimerFunds, returned to the firm a week after it was decimated by the events of September 11.
