Courter joins from Deutsche Bank, where he spent ten years as a senior sales trader, and most recently as head of the U.S. ETF sales and trading desk, where he oversaw a global institutional client base. Courter began his career on Wall Street working for Bear Stearns' portfolio trading desk under Bret Chesney, who now manages Alpine's global event-driven trading portfolio. In his new role at Alpine, Courter will focus on global arbitrage opportunities, trading exposures via ETFs due to events in the marketplace.
"I am excited to take my sell-side experience to a buy-side environment such as Alpine, where value is placed on fostering innovation and exploring new ideas," said Courter.
Courter graduated from Rutgers University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and started his professional career in technology consulting at Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).
