European hedge fund firm Ratio Asset Management has hired a former Deutsche Bank executive as its investor relations head,.
Alice Squires was head of pan-European small- and mid-cap equity sales during the first half of the last decade, HedgeWeek reports. She also worked on Natwest Securities' U.K. small- and mid-cap sales desk from 1997 through 2000.
Which makes her a good fit for Ratio, both of whose funds invest in the mid-cap space.
"We quickly identified Alice as the ideal person to help tell our story to potential investors, considering her knowledge of the small and mid-cap asset class and the diverse investment opportunity it offers," firm co-founder Jonathan Sharpe said. "With our collective experience and few direct competitors, Ratio is ideally positioned to take advantage of the continuing structural and valuation inefficiencies in our asset class and continue to deliver good performance."
