Managed futures shop Qbasis Invest has added a hedge fund marketer to its growing London office.
Alistair Evans has been named director of U.K. sales at the Liechstenstein-based firm, who earlier this year unveiled an exchange-traded fund tracking its existing managed futures fund.
“We are very pleased that Alistair will be spearheading our marketing in the U.K.,” Philipp Pölzl, co-founder of Qbasis, said. “The new ETF will offer U.K.-based investors constant high diversification with strict risk control, low correlation to traditional investments and enable them to profit from rising and falling prices.”
Evans had been running his own hedge fund marketing business, GLS, before joining Qbasis. He has also worked at UBS, Merrill Lynch, ECU Group and Laidlaw.
