Thames River Replaces Roos With Lahaut At Property Fund

Jan 26 2011 | 3:42am ET

Thames River Capital has announced a shakeup at its €123 million property hedge fund.

Lead manager Christian Roos has left Thames River Property Investment Trust's Longstone fund. He has been replaced by Raymond Lahaut, who joined the firm from Rabobank this month.

Roos is to join De Putron Fund Management in March. He's not the only top manager leaving Thames River Property; Chris Turner is due to retire at the end of March. Turner will remain a consultant to the firm.

Lahaut's résumé boasts stints at Portland Capital, OHRA Asset Management and Swiss Finance & Property.

"Raymond will be a valuable addition to our excellent property team, which has expertise in both property securities and direct property across the globe, with a range of strategies to suit different risk/reward profiles," Marcus Phayre-Mudge, head of property at Thames River, said. "His focus will be on managing the Longstone Fund, but the whole team will benefit from his global experience."
