Cardinal Asset Management has appointed Tim Peach to head up marketing and distribution for its single strategy hedge funds and multi-manager products.
Peach joins from Man Investments where he spent eight years marketing and developing Man's distribution channels across Europe, South East Asia and Japan.
"I have spent the majority of my career building effective distribution with a firm at the front line of growth within the alternative asset industry," said Peach. "At this point in my development it is important for me to work with the highest quality of managers and to follow a business model I believe is best positioned for future success within a rapidly changing environment.
He added: "Cardinal offers a powerful combination of top-quality hedge fund trading talent with a robust and flexible business model. I believe firms like Cardinal, with their institutional reach and depth of experience, will drive the next phase of growth within the industry. I am tremendously excited about the challenge of significantly expanding their global distribution capabilities."
