Hedge fund firm Abria Alternative Investments has appointed Brian Kralik, a CA and CFA, as vice-president finance.

Kralik comes to Abria from the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, where he was managed Teachers' investment finance operations, including $12 billion in private capital and alternative investments.

He also spent five years at accounting firm KPMG, providing audit service to Canadian financial institutions.

"Mr. Kralik's experience in managing the day-to-day operations of a large portfolio of various private and alternative investments at one of the world's leading institutional investors will be a great benefit to Abria and our investors," said Abria founder Henry Kneis. "As VP Finance, Brian will focus on managing Abria's finance and investment operations and assisting in the operational due diligence of existing and prospective fund managers."

Abria also announced today that it is in the process of completing the manager selection, due diligence and structuring of three new alternative products: a leveraged version of its existing market neutral fund of hedge funds, a diversified energy focused fund of hedge funds and a specialty finance investment fund.
