New York-based alternative investment manager Cadogan Management has announced the appointment of John Trammell, 50, as president to work alongside chief executive Stuart Leaf to manage and oversee the firm's business.
Cadogan, which is 70 per cent owned by Fortis Investments, is a provider of alternative investment management solutions to institutional and family office investors, and has USD4.7bn in assets under management.
Trammell has extensive experience in investment, institutional sales, operations and research. He spent the past seven years at independent fund of funds Investor Select Advisors, most recently as chief executive.
At Investor Select Advisors Trammell oversaw strategic planning and day-to-day business functions, including linking the research, sales, administration and legal aspects of the company. In particular, he helped to build up the global institutional business with Japanese and other large global institutions and distributors.
Trammell joined Investor Select Advisors from New York-based Argonaut Capital Management, where he was chief operating officer. At Argonaut, he worked with David Gerstenhaber, formerly of Tiger Management, to run a global macro hedge fund.
At Cadogan, Trammell will seek to help the firm increase the potential of the combined Cadogan/Fortis Investments brand globally and have a pivotal role in co-ordinating business activities between the two companies. Fortis Investments had EUR131bn in assets under management at the end of June.
