Insparo Asset Management Names First Investor Relations Manager

Jun 1 2010 | 7:38am ET

UK-based hedge fund firm Insparo Asset Management has appointed Man Investments’ Emma Robinson to the role of investor relations manager.
 
Robinson will support Jamie Allsopp in marketing the firm's Africa and Middle East Fund, which has returned over 45% since the start of 2009, to a range of hedge fund and emerging market investors in Europe, Middle East and the U.S. She will also serve as the firm’s point person for investor communications.
 
 “The return our Africa and the Middle East strategy has made in the last 18 months has, unsurprisingly, drawn a lot of attention from investors," said Allsopp. "Frontier markets are in relatively robust fiscal positions when compared to their OECD counterparts, and the investment community is generally underweight this enormous growth opportunity. With the confluence of our historic returns and our optimistic outlook for our region we feel that it is the right time to increase our capabilities in client services."

Before joining Insparo, Robinson spent two years at Man Investments as an institutional sales assistant. In that role, she gained experience of investor relations across the board, and at the time of her leaving, she had taken on responsibility for Man’s UK consultant relationship management.
 
Prior to joining Man, Robinson was with recruitment consultancy Venn Group.
 
Insparo Asset Management currently has US$170 million is assets under management.
