Henderson Global Investors has appointed Jill Hodges, previously director of marketing at MT Thaler Investment Management, as hedge fund sales manager, reporting to director of global hedge fund sales Alastair Barrie.
At MT Thaler, Hodges was responsible for sales, marketing and investor relations for European clients. She has also been an equity analyst at Credit Suisse First Boston in London and a consultant with Ernst and Young Consulting in Europe and the US.
‘We are delighted to have attracted someone of Jill’s calibre to join the team,’ says Kate O’Neill, director of pan-European distribution and hedge funds. ‘Henderson has built a credible hedge fund business exploiting the in-house talent we have developed across multiple asset classes. Jill’s experience in financial markets and hedge funds combined with her strong network of contacts in Europe will support us in our efforts to continue to grow the business.’
Henderson currently has more than USD3bn under management in its hedge fund business spread across 13 funds, split between long/short directional equity funds, market-neutral funds with a regional focus, equity long/short style rotational funds, and fixed-income multi-strategy and single strategy funds.
Established in 1934, Henderson Global Investors is an independent asset manager with more than GBP61bn in assets under management at the end of last year for institutional, retail and high net-worth clients in a broad range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, property and private capital. Headquartered in London, Henderson employs around 900 people worldwide.
