Finisterre Capital Hires Ménabé for Global Opportunity Fund

Jan 10 2011 | 8:27am ET

London-based Finisterre Capital has hired Guillaume Ménabé as a junior portfolio manager for the company’s Global Opportunity Fund, where he will run a portion of the forex and commodities portfolio.

Ménabé comes to Finisterre from JP Morgan where he served as portfolio manager in the global macro proprietary trading team in London. Prior to that, he worked on JP Morgan’s structured product energy trading team in London and Asia.

“We are delighted that Guillaume has joined us. Given the robust growth of the fund, we need further expertise in foreign exchange and commodity trading to take advantage of the opportunities that we find in emerging markets,” said Yan Swiderski, partner and portfolio manager of the Global Opportunity Fund.

Finisterre, founded in 2002, manages emerging markets funds in a variety of asset classes. In addition to the Global Opportunity Fund, which has a portfolio of sovereign and corporate debt, foreign exchange, interest rates and equity, the firm runs the Sovereign Debt Fund (with over $300 million in assets), the Finisterre Credit Fund (specializing in corporate credit), and the recently launched the Emerging Markets Fund, which gives investors access to all Finisterre strategies.
