Gentilini Named Hedge Fund Research Chief At Lipper

Jan 18 2007 | 11:48am ET

Looking for a piece of the growing hedge fund research market, Lipper has added to its hedge fund and multi-asset research teams.

Aureliano Gentilini has been named global head of hedge fund research. Based in Rome, Gentilini will seek to harness Lipper’s experience in mutual fund research to develop published and customer-tailored hedge fund research, in an effort to “put the company on the hedge fund research map,” according to a Lipper statement.

He will be joined in the venture by Lipper Hedgeworld’s Ferenc Sanderson as senior research analyst in New York. Sanderson, a former alternatives analyst with Daiwa, will also work with the mutual fund team.

In addition, former Multex director of investment research Marc Gerstein and Ashwani Kaul, most recently a senior analyst with Lipper parent Reuters’ Reuters Estimates, have been named multi-asset research analysts. Both are based in New York.

Both the hedge fund and multi-asset teams are part of Lipper’s wider research group, which got a new boss last month in the form of Gabriel Burstein, a former global macro, multi-asset and hedge fund investment strategist at HSBC, Daiwa and Goldman Sachs.
