London-based trading advisor Mulvaney Capital Management Ltd has recently boosted its marketing strength with two new hires.
Colin Lloyd, who has worked in commodity and financial markets since 1981, joined the company as Head of Sales in February. A former Man Group director of institutional sales, he will spearhead MCM's drive to extend and deepen its investor base globally.
'I was particularly attracted by Mulvaney Capital's very long-term quantitative methodology,' says Lloyd. 'The vast flow of assets into the alternative investment space over the past decade has lead to a broad degradation of returns for the majority of hedge fund styles, with the notable exception of very long-term trend following.'
In March, former MARHedge journalist Patricia Ward joined as Head of Marketing and Communications. She will work closely with Lloyd and the rest of the MCM team in defining and communicating the benefits of MCM products to investors.
'We are pleased to welcome Colin and Patricia to our growing team,' says MCM founder and chief investment officer Paul Mulvaney. 'Their extensive industry knowledge and experience will help position MCM to respond to increasing investor interest in our program and the managed futures sector of the alternative investment industry.'
Background notes: MCM's long-term trend-following system identifies and captures trends in diverse financial and commodities futures markets. MCM's Global Diversified Program was opened to managed-account clients in May 1999. The Mulvaney Global Markets Fund (MGMF) was launched in March 2002. MCM returned over 32% in 2005, during which assets under management passed the USD 100 million mark.
