Global multi-asset manager Fulcrum Asset Management has hired Filippo Cartiglia, former chief international economist at Arrowgrass Capital Partners, as a senior member of its investment team.

Cartiglia’s hire is aimed at strengthening the GBP3.6 billion firm’s macro effort, with his role focusing on macroeconomic research.

Before joining Fulcrum, he spent nine years at multi-asset hedge fund manager Arrowgrass Capital Partners as chief international economist. He was previously based in Goldman Sachs International’s economic research group in London, and was later a managing director in its private wealth management division. 

Earlier in his career he worked for hedge fund manager Newman Ragazzi Partners and as an economist for the International Monetary Fund.

Established in 2004, Fulcrum manages a range of multi-asset and standalone funds spanning discretionary, systematic and alternatives strategies. Its discretionary multi-asset funds are offered as both relative and absolute return funds and the systematic funds focus on trend as well as risk premia.

“We are very pleased to have someone of Filippo’s quality and experience join our investment team and we look forward to working with him to further enhance our macro capability,” said Nabeel Abdoula, head of discretionary strategies at Fulcrum.
