In this new role, Yepes has overall responsibility for client relationship management in the U.S. and institutional clients in Canada. He will be based in Man’s New York office and report to Martin Keller, head of institutional clients at Man.

Yepes joins Man Investments from Gottex Fund Management.  At Gottex, he was responsible for developing the firm’s North and South American distribution businesses, working closely with the consultant community, major public pension plans, endowments, and private banks.
