Oakley Alternative Investment Management has hired a former Credit Agricole Asset Management Alternative Investments to help it build out its business.
Teun Johnston has been named a portfolio manager at Oakley Alternative Investment Management, where he’ll work to develop the firm’s investment function and business, HedgeWeek reports.
Johnston joins from Amundi AI—the former Credit Agricole unit—where he was co-head of investments and head of the London office. During his decade at that firm, Johnston rose from senior analyst. He has also worked at Arthur Andersen, where he spent time on the hedge fund and venture capital audit group in San Francisco.
“Attracting an investment professional of Teun’s ability and experience is testament to Oakley’s increasing profile and reputation in the alternatives industry,” Nick Hannan, chief investment officer, said. “It is significant that someone of Teun’s calibre has moved from a $13 billion industry leader to a boutique fund manager such as Oakley, attracted by the possibility of working with a more nimble organization, which has the talent and expertise to continue its expansion.”
