UK-based fund of hedge funds Liongate Capital Management has expanded its U.S. presence with the appointment of Richard ‘Rick’ Teisch as U.S. director of investment research.
Teisch comes to Liongate from the U.S.-based alternatives consultant Cliffwater, where he served as a managing director, heading equity long/short research. Teisch has also held senior analyst roles with Paradigm Consulting Services, Hennessee Group and Public Service Enterprise Group. In his new role he will be based in Liongate’s midtown Manhattan office and will oversee the expansion of the firm’s U.S. investment research activity.
Said Jeff Holland, Liongate managing director: “Expanding our presence in the U.S. will enable us to be in closer communication with our American investors. Investment research will also be closer to our American investment managers, further sharpening our focus on high risk-adjusted returns for our clients.”
