Qbasis expands in UK with hire of Alistair Evans

Qbasis Invest, the Liechtenstein-based managed futures specialist, is expanding its London marketing operations with the appointment of Alistair Evans as director sales, UK.

Evans has eight years’ experience in the alternatives sector. 

Most recently, he was partner and co-founder of GLS, a hedge fund marketing business.

Prior to that he worked at UBS and Merrill Lynch, where he focused on the intermediary and wealth manager market.

He began his career in 2002 at the US investment bank Laidlaw and then moved to the ECU Group, a former subsidiary of ED&F Man.

Evans will concentrate on promoting Qbasis’ new exchange-traded fund, the Qbasis Futures Fund, which commenced trading on the Hamburg stock exchange on 1 April. The ETF replicates the investment strategy of the principal Qbasis managed futures fund, also called the Qbasis Futures Fund, but will be accessible to retail investors.

“We are very pleased that Alistair will be spearheading our marketing in the UK,” says Philipp Pölzl, the co-founder of Qbasis. “The new ETF will offer UK-based investors constant high diversification with strict risk control, low correlation to traditional investments and enable them to profit from rising and falling prices.”
