Man Group Hires Three For Expanding US Operations

Mar 9 2011 | 11:53am ET

The Man Group continues to expand its U.S. business with three new hires: two for its multi-manager business and one for its North American sales team.

Todd Kata, formerly a managing director for a New York-based long/short equity manager will join the Man Group as a senior analyst on the equities team within hedge fund research, reporting to Robin Lowe. Kata, who also worked for Carlyle Group and Morgan Stanley, will be responsible for sourcing, monitoring and ongoing due diligence of long/short equity funds and is located in New York.

Jeremie Ho Hio Hen, previously a rates and FX exotics trader with JP Morgan, joins the Man Group as an analyst on the portfolio management team reporting to Art Holly. He is primarily responsible for the research and construction of analytical models.

Luke Ellis, CIO and head of Man’s multi-manager business, says: “I have known Todd for a long time and I am delighted that he has joined our research effort—his direct experience within a long/short hedge fund makes him ideally suited for getting real insight into managers’ stock picking and portfolio management so we can sort the skilled managers from the rest.

“Jeremie brings great technical skills to the team which enables the team to deliver dynamic portfolio solutions for our clients.”

The Man Group has also tapped Blackstone Group alumnus Michael Callahan for its North American sales team. Callahan will focus on U.S. institutional and family office relationships.

Man recently acquired the U.S.-listed GLG Partners as part of its expansion into the North American market.
