Co-Founder and Managing Principal, Albright Capital Management
Gregory Bowes, Co-Founder and Managing Principal of ACM, has over 30 years’ experience building businesses in the financial services and alternative asset management industry. With John Yonemoto and other senior members of the Investment Team, he has run ACM on a day-to-day basis since inception in 2003. His attraction to EM Special Situations was a natural extension of his longstanding attraction to market inefficiencies in developed markets. Prior to ACM, Mr. Bowes served in senior catalytic roles with three previous financial services start-ups: (1) Greenwich Capital Markets (1987-1993), (2) Greenwich International and Greenwich NatWest (1993-1999), and (3) a segregated initiative at Fairfield Greenwich Group (2000-2003) (“FGG”; unaffiliated with Greenwich Capital). His career began with Bankers Trust Company (BT) in 1983, where he financed early leveraged buy-outs and distressed investors as a member of the credit-intensive Commercial Banking Group. Later, he worked in BT’s capital markets division as an institutional fixed income salesman. After being recruited to Greenwich Capital Markets early in the firm’s development, Mr. Bowes played a multi-faceted leadership role, contributing to the firm’s ensuing success. Among other achievements, Mr. Bowes established Greenwich International as a stand-alone business in London, served as senior executive for their UK-registered broker/dealer, supervised a substantial international proprietary trading operation, and turned around several divisions of NatWest Capital Markets (following Greenwich Capital’s acquisition by National Westminster Bank). After a short period at Morgan Stanley in their Private Wealth Management Division, Bowes joined FGG to fill a newly created role as head of New Product Development, charged with identifying and delivering to the market new sources of alpha. He was integral to diversifying the firm away from excessive dependence on a single strategy and development of an unrelated multi-strategy platform. Assets under management in the new division grew to over $2 billion from a negligible base as an immediate result of his leadership. Mr. Bowes serves on the Advisory Committee of Kingsley Capital and has served on the Board of Directors of APR Energy and Prologue Capital. He resides in Washington D.C. with his wife of 29 years, Alice Albright, and two sons, David and Daniel. He is a 1983 graduate (Economics and History) and Trustee Emeritus of Bowdoin College. He also serves on the Board of Directors of Camp Pemigewassett, a nationally renowned summer camp for boys.
