Hong Kong-based Gen2 Partners have appointed Xavier Fanjaud from Infiniti Capital. Hedgeweek understands that Fanjaud will continue to run the Invenio and Conquistador II Sub-Trust funds, increasing Gen2 Partners’ FoFs to six with AUM north of USD 500 million. “Xavier comes with more than 10 years’ experience,” explains Gen2 Partners Managing Partner, Barry Lau. “He struck me as someone very thorough, and with a great feel for identifying managers; he’s pretty well spot on in my view.” Gen2 Partners are looking to vertically build more depth and bandwidth into their investment team to generate better research and risk assessment, and expect to make further key hires soon. “The fund business is going more mainstream so we’ll be looking to build our infrastructure capable of taking new money,” adds Lau.
