The team of five, including Michael Elkins, previously with Avenue Capital, and Jason Epstein, formerly managing director of Oak Hill Advisors, will be based in New York.

The company said the new team would “collaborate closely” with existing CFSGAM fixed income teams through the Investment Opinion Network technology platform, which would allow fixed income teams to access each-other's research and strategies.
