GLG appoints Nick Judge as UK asset manager
GLG Partners, an FSA-authorised and regulated investment manager, has appointed Nick Judge as an asset manager in the UK team.
Working in the UK equities division headed by John White and Jason Mackay, Judge will be part of the five-strong team responsible for the management of GLG's range of UK funds. These include the GLG Alpha Select Fund, under whose strategy GLG manages USD1bn, and the recently launched GLG UK Select Fund, a UK-domiciled version of its Irish Ucits long-only GLG UK Select Equity Fund.
Judge joins GLG from Merrill Lynch where he was a managing director in its equities division.
White says: 'We are delighted Nick has decided to join the team. He is a hugely talented UK specialist who I have known for many years, and have worked with previously at Morgan Stanley. His knowledge and insight are second to none, which has been demonstrated over a long period of time by the consistency of his performance-generating ideas.'
Pierre Lagrange, co-founder of GLG, adds: 'Nick joins GLG at a time when we see growing opportunities in UK stock markets. He is one of those few individuals with an outstanding track record of consistently calling stocks right, and he will add to the already outstanding ability of John and Jason's team to produce superior stock picking returns.'
