Invesco Vet Joins Naqvi-Van Ness Asset Management

May 10 2010 | 10:20am ET

Hedge fund firm Naqvi-Van Ness Asset Management has tapped Invesco veteran Charles DuBois as director of investment strategies and research.

“Chuck has extensive experience with both successful quantitative and qualitative investing," said Albert Van Ness, managing partner of New York-based NVAM. "In addition, Chuck’s expertise includes forecasting both individual securities and overall markets. This combination is difficult to find. We look forward to his contribution to meeting our investment return and risk objectives.”

DuBois has over 30 years of investment experience. In April 2009, he retired from the Global Structured Products Group of Invesco. DuBois was one of the founders of the quantitative investment group at Citicorp Investment Management which was purchased by USF&G in 1989, renamed Chancellor Capital Management and was ultimately acquired by Invesco. Earlier in his career, DuBois was with Industrial Commodity Corp and R. H. Macy & Co.

DuBois is one of the pioneers in buy-side quantitative stock selection and is also an early and well known practitioner of Tactical Asset Allocation. He started one of the first quantitatively based style rotation portfolios. DuBois also has extensive experience in managing traditional growth oriented portfolios.

“I am pleased to have joined NVAM,” said DuBois. “My objective is to add and systematize ideas for trading and investing in both individual stocks and markets. I will also seek to provide additional quantification of return and risk levels as well as contribute to the identification of overall investment opportunities.”

NVAM was founded in 2001 by Ali Naqvi and Albert Van Ness. The firm manages two absolute return funds.
