Singapore-based Richard Williams has been elected equity partner of London-based fund of hedge funds Caliburn Capital Partners.
Williams, who joined Caliburn in 2006, has been in the Singapore office since it opened in 2008. Working with Caliburn Partner Mike Curry, Williams played a key role in building the firm’s Asian research network and serving as investment manager for the Caliburn Greater China Fund.
Caliburn CEO Jeremy Rowlands said:
“The Asian entrepreneurial culture continues to drive the emergence of a hedge fund community which offers efficient ways to exploit the regional growth drivers. Caliburn Capital has responded to international institutional interest by meaningfully expanding its local presence in 2010…These developments in Singapore have been made possible by the success of our office since its establishment in 2008 and Richard Williams has been a key part of that success. It is therefore wholly appropriate that he has been elected to an equity partnership in our business.”
Caliburn Capital was founded in 2005 and currently manages $759 million with offices in London, Geneva and Singapore.
