Trium Capital appoints event-driven equities specialist Tej Johar

Alternative asset manager Trium Capital has hired experienced hedge fund manager Tej Johar. 

Johar, who joins Trium after extensive experience running successful event-driven strategies for a range of top tier hedge funds, will be responsible for developing and overseeing Trium’s event-driven equity strategies, as the firm continues to broaden its range of uncorrelated solutions.

Johar joins from Man GLG, where he ran a European long/short event-driven equity portfolio. Before joining Man GLG, he was CIO of Broad Bridge Capital, where he also ran an event-driven equity alternative strategy. Prior to this role, he spent almost three years at BlueCrest Capital Management. Before BlueCrest, he held positions at Credit Suisse, Marshall Wace and UBS Investment Bank. Johar holds a BSc in Economics from the London School of Economics. 

Trium hand picks accomplished investment managers early in their careers in order to harness the intense focus, nimbleness and performance premium which is notoriously difficult to access due to inherent risks associated with start-ups.  

Johar says: “Trium actively strives to harness the potential of emerging managers, while employing a true partnership approach. The company has proven itself as a leading player in bringing successful uncorrelated strategies to market and I am excited to be a part of its dynamic and collaborative offering.” 

Shenan Dhanani, co-head of Trium Capital, says: “Bringing a manager of Tej’s calibre on board demonstrates Trium’s commitment to expanding and cultivating our diverse range of alternative strategies. Against the backdrop of heightened volatility, we continue to broaden our offering of alpha-driven uncorrelated strategies. We are committed to providing investors with value-added access to exceptional managers and look forward to bringing Tej’s wealth of investment experience to bear.”
