Swiss fund of hedge funds firm EIM has nabbed a Nomura alternative investments executive to lead its due diligence efforts.
John Ward will join EIM in New York on Nov. 8 as head of operation due diligence. Most recently, he was chief operating officer of alternative products at Nomura Funds Research & Technologies America.
“Risk management and operational due diligence are two critical pillars of EIM’s fiduciary responsibility to its clients,” Arpad Busson, EIM’s founder, said.
