Angie Long

Co-Founder & Owner, Kansas City Current

Angie Long is Chief Investment Officer and one of two Principal Owners for Palmer Square Capital Management, where she has key responsibilities for all investment-related activities.


With her leadership, the firm has grown Assets Under Management (AUM) to more than $20 billion and has expanded its global presence, notably with the recent establishment of a London office. She is widely regarded as a pioneer in credit and fixed income.  Angie has a history of innovation including pioneering aspects of the credit derivatives industry and creating the HYDI (High Yield Debt Index), the first liquid credit trading index and predecessor to all of today’s indices (the Markit CDX).


Additionally, Angie is one of the architects of the firm’s investment strategy in Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs). With more than 40 CLOs issued since 2013, including 6 in Europe, Palmer Square is one of only nine CLO managers among 128 who experienced zero downgrades in 2020. Additionally, Angie’s vision was behind the firm’s proprietary scoring system to identify and evaluate fund performance in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) metrics, with all the firm’s European funds ESG compliant.


Most recently, Angie has added the title of Professional Sports Team Owner to her long list of accomplishments, as she joined Co-Founder and Owner Chris Long and Co-Owner Brittany Matthews in bringing a National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) franchise to Kansas City. The team launched on an extraordinary timeline, playing its first professional match just 124 days after the franchise was announced.


Angie’s career includes experience at JPMorgan Chase & Co. where she was named a Managing Director at age 29 and held many senior roles including Deputy Head of North American Credit Trading, Head of High Yield Trading, and Head of Credit Derivatives Trading. In addition, she worked with the Global Head of Credit Trading to help oversee risk management for the High Yield and High Grade credit trading books.


Angie received an AB degree in Economics from Princeton University and was a member of two National Championship Rugby teams and named an All-American in 1997. Angie has continued her involvement with Princeton as she served on the Women in Leadership Committee of Princeton, founded the Greater Kansas City Princeton Women’s Network (PWN), and is currently serving as Co-Chair for the Princeton Greater Kansas City

Region’s Alumni Schools Committee.


Angie is a member of the 100 Women in Finance and is a CFA ® charterholder.
