FS Investments, an alternative asset manager, has hired Marc Bryant as senior managing director and chief legal officer to oversee all legal and compliance functions. He will also serve on the firm’s executive committee.
Previously, Bryant served as senior vice president and deputy general counsel and head of asset management legal at Fidelity Investments in Boston. Prior to joining Fidelity in 2010, he served as senior vice president and head of global retail legal at AllianceBernstein L.P. and, before this, general counsel and chief legal officer at ProFund Advisors LLC.
“Marc’s deep legal expertise in the financial services industry will be invaluable to our firm as the legal and regulatory environment continues to evolve,” said Michael Forman, chairman and CEO of FS Investments. “I look forward to having him join the executive committee and benefiting from his insights and experience as our business continues to grow in size and complexity.”
Bryant is the third recent hire to FS Investments’ executive committee, following the additions of Robert Stark as senior managing director of corporate development in November and Vincent Amatulli as chief technology and operations officer in January.
Bryant earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Colgate University and a J.D. from Emory University School of Law.
FS Investments is headquartered in Philadelphia, with offices in New York City, Orlando, and Washington, DC.
