Related Topics

Gottex Fund Management, an alternative asset management group, integrated the Constellar fund of funds into the Gottex product range.

Ted Wong, founder and chief executive of Constellar Capital, will join Gottex.

As from February 2010, Gottex will take over the investment management of the three Constellar fund of hedge funds: the broadly diversified Gemini Funds (US onshore and offshore) and the Constellar Asia Fund.

These funds had approximately USD150m in assets under management as at 31 December 2009.

The more directional Constellar funds will broaden Gottex’s product offering in the US onshore as well as in the offshore sector, in line with Gottex’s long term strategy to evolve into an institutional multi-asset manager with a strong core in alternatives and fund of funds.

Wong will join Gottex as portfolio manager of the Constellar funds, become co-PM of the Gottex Tiger Fund and member of the research committee. He previously held senior positions at Credit Suisse, Tiger Management and Goldman Sachs.

Joachim Gottschalk (pictured), chairman and chief executive of Gottex, says: “We are very pleased to welcome Ted to Gottex. High quality professionals like Ted will strengthen our investment capabilities, allowing us to further improve the service we provide to our customers. We look forward to working with him and strengthen our directional multistrategy fund of funds offering in the US onshore and offshore markets.”

Wong adds: “I am excited to join Gottex and work closely together with its strong team of professionals. I have been attracted by the intellectual capital and broad investment experience present at the company. Gottex provides an institutional asset management platform with strong investment processes that will allow the Constellar funds to grow and achieve their potential.”
