Man Investments has appointed George Yepes as managing director in charge of North American sales and relationship management.
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.
"In the current climate, investors want deeper partnerships and more transparency with their asset managers than they ever have before,” said Keller. “George’s 20 years sales and financial market experience, deep hedge fund knowledge and strong client relationships make him ideally placed to develop these close partnerships.”
Man currently allocates approximately $9 billion to U.S.-based hedge funds and has 130 full-time employees in North America.
