Top Sloane Robinson Manager Resigns

Aug 10 2010 | 11:46am ET

Sloane Robinson isn’t used to losing top staff. But the London-based hedge fund has bid farewell to its third senior member in two years with the exit of Rupert Dyson.

Dyson was head of the firm’s European team. He has resigned to take a break from the asset management industry, Sloane Robinson said in a London Stock Exchange announcement.

Dyson, who spent six years at Sloane Robinson, had been one of four named fund managers at the firm and one of 12 partners. He will be succeeded by Michael Huffton.

Last year, Sloane Robinson lost Mark Haworth, one of four directors at the firm—and the first to leave in more than eight years—and Jim Lloyd, Haworth’s co-manager on the firm’s Phoenicia Fund.
