Ex-BlackRock Hedge Fund Manager Joins Gold Co.

Feb 16 2010 | 11:08am ET

Former BlackRock hedge fund manager Graham Birch is keeping busy in retirement.

Birch, who left the money management giant last month to run his 3,600-acre dairy farm in southwest England, has joined gold producer Petropavlovsk as an adviser.

Birch was named a non-executive director at the firm, which was founded by Peter Hambro. Peter Hambro is the father of Evy Hambro, who served as co-manager of Birch’s BGF World Gold Fund at BlackRock and now runs Birch’s former natural-resources equity team with Robin Batchelor.

“His experience of our industry is exceptional; not least because he and the team he worked with have looked in depth at many of the most significant mining enterprises in the world,” Peter Hambro said.

Birch had managed or co-managed BlackRock’s BGF World Gold Fund, World Mining Trust, Agriculture Hedge Fund and Natural Resources Hedge Fund before going on sabbatical last March.
