Bert Verdicchio has joined Vulpes Investment Management, the former family office of Artradis co-founder Stephen Diggle that now houses two of Artradis' former funds, Russian Opportunities and Testudo.

Verdicchio previously worked at Rabobank Australia, as director of debt capital markets, and at Bank of America. He and Diggle have known each other for more than two decades.
