LaCrosse to provide fund administration to Woodsford Capital Management
Woodsford Capital Management, a Singapore-based investment manager, has selected LaCrosse Global Fund Services as its full-service administrator.
Founded in Singapore in 2010, Woodsford manages the assets of the Woodsford Relative Macro Fund, which invests in equity, fixed income, currency and commodity markets across the world based on macroeconomic analysis.
Zhijian Wu, chief executive officer of Woodsford, founded the firm after working at ED&F Man, the commodity trading company, where he spent two years in London on the global trading desk developing and implementing trading strategies in futures and options. He returned to Singapore in 2007 to manage the Asian trading book.
Woodsford’s chief investment officer Donatas Brazdzius has eight years of front-line investment experience. At Woodsford Consulting, he creates proprietary global asset allocation strategies for an asset portfolio valued in excess of USD500m. Prior to joining Woodsford Consulting, Donatas was a senior investment analyst at Pivot Capital Management, a Monaco-based global-macro hedge fund.
"Wu’s decision to select LaCrosse for a full-service mandate reinforces the fact that our experience and expertise in the hedge fund industry, including work with complex fund strategies in Asia and globally, makes us a compelling resource for outsourced administration and operational support,” says LaCrosse Global Fund Services’ managing director for Asia Celia Choh.
“We are impressed with LaCrosse Global Fund Services’ ability to provide services covering ‘everything after the trade.; The firm’s track record, advanced operational model and Asian presence influenced our decision to select the firm as our fund administrator,” says Wu.
