A pair of British female hedge fund executives are on the move.
Katherine Garrett-Cox, who served for two years as chief investment officer at London-based Morley Fund Management, has resigned to assume the same post at Dundee, Scotland-based Alliance Trust. The move comes just days after the appointment as CEO of Scottish Widows executive Chris Phillips.
Morley head of strategy Adrian Jarvis is to succeed Garrett-Cox on an interim basis, beginning in March.
Also bolting is Axa Investment Managers’ Véronique Courlier, the Financial Times reports. Courlier, who, like Garrett-Cox, had been on the job for about two years, is reportedly departing over a difference in strategy. An Axa statement called the decision a “mutual separation” allowing Courlier to pursue “new opportunities.”
Courlier joined Axa with a mandate to establish a centralized hedge fund division. She was reportedly unhappy with Axa’s decision to allow its other business groups—notably Axa Framlington and Axa Rosenberg—to set up long/short funds independent of Courlier’s group.
Chris Manser, head of alternative investments at recently acquired Winterthur, takes over as head of Courlier’s former group.
