Curtis Adams and Nick Williams, formerly of Mizuho Corporate Bank London, have launched the London-based Ovington Multi-Strategy Fixed Income Hedge Fund.
Adams is a 20-year vet of Mizuho where he headed the profitable diversified trading group. He brings his Mizuho team— drawn from financial institutions including BNP Paribas, Soros Fund Management and Dresdner Bank—with him to the new fund.
The Ovington fund will launch initially on the Mirabella Financial Services platform with the aim of delivering “stable absolute returns over a broad range of market conditions through a diversified portfolio of strategies.” The fund will concentrate on highly liquid instruments including government bonds, swaps, futures and currencies. The team's trading style encompasses a combination of macro and relative value strategies within the G7 fixed income arena.
The Ovington Fund is seeded by SEB’s Luxembourg based Manager Catalyst Fund.
Said Adams, “Our vision is to build a scalable investment management group under the Ovington franchise with leading edge technology and institutional quality operations. This is an established team working together across a combination of macro, directional and relative value trading strategies and is ideally placed to take advantage of the massive reduction in risk appetite coupled with increased government bond issuance.”
