Thames River’s Muysken Returns To Mercer

May 6 2010 | 9:52am ET

Three years after losing him to Thames River Capital, Mercer has rehired its former global head of research.

William Muysken was named the investment consultancy’s first chief investment officer for alternative strategies. He takes up the new role next month, Mercer said.

Muysken worked at Mercer for 14 years before joining Thames River in 2007. At the London-based hedge fund, he managed the £17 million Currency Alpha fund of funds.

Thames River said it was likely to shutter that fund following Muysken’s departure.

Last week, F&C Asset Management announced that it was buying Thames River for as much as £53.6 million.
