Gervais Williams, whose departure from Gartmore Group in September coincided with the beginning of an avalanche of bad news for the firm, has joined MAM Funds.
Williams has been named a managing director at the much smaller firm, formerly Midas Capital and Mitron Asset Management. The hire is part of MAM's plan to raise £20 million in new capital.
Williams had been one of Gartmore's longest-serving fund managers and led its Irish-listed and small-cap funds. His exit led one of those funds, the £51 million Growth Opportunity Fund, to fire Gartmore.
Since Williams' exit, Gartmore has been thrown into turmoil by a series of high-level departures, most importantly that of star hedge fund manager Roger Guy. Gartmore is now actively seeking a buyer or merger partner.
