Halbis, the active asset management specialist of the HSBC Group, has appointed Tarne Bevan as head of trade execution, responsible for enhancing performance by better integrating trading strategies and capabilities with Halbis’s investment decisions.
Bill Maldonado, head of alternative investments and trading at Halbis, says: ‘This is a key role for our business, as we aim to achieve a more seamless alignment between our trading strategies and our investment processes.’
The role is diverse, requiring skills in execution, information technology, systems, project management and a number of other areas. Bevan’s background and experience, on both the buy and sell sides, make her ideally suited for the challenge. She is based in London, and reports to Maldonado.
Maldonado says: ‘By better integrating our trading strategies and capabilities with our investment decisions, this could enhance and improve our performance. Ultimately, the yardstick of this success will be the returns of our various strategies and trading performance.’
Bevan has worked in both investment banking and asset management since joining the industry in 1996. Before joining Halbis in 2007, she was head of programme and algorithmic sales for HSBC Bank. She brings sell-side experience from prior roles at WestLB Panmure and Nomura International and she also previously worked on the buy side as a dealer for F&C.
Halbis is an active investment manager focused on delivering sustainable value-added performance in selected areas of the global market, specialising in European equities, value-added fixed income, Asian and emerging markets equities and some alternative strategies.
Halbis is part of the HSBC group’s investment businesses, comprising HSBC Investments, Halbis and Sinopia, which collectively managed assets of USD327bn at the end of March. The share of Halbis was USD 87.6bn.
