Quant Investment Firm TruColor Capital Makes 3 Senior Hires

Jul 18 2011 | 1:48pm ET

TruColor Capital Management, a quantitative investment firm, has made a number of senior hires, including 30-year investing veteran Arlene Rockefeller as president and chief operating officer.

Massachusetts-based TruColor has also tapped Michael Dunn as chief research officer, and Luke Smith as senior research officer. The three will join the team responsible for managing the firm’s first product, the recently launched TruColor Capital Emerging Markets Absolute Return Fund.

“Arlene, Mike and Luke are proof-positive demonstrations of TruColor Capital’s continued and strategic growth as a high-quality, investment firm,” said Mark Pearl, TruColor founding partner. “As we broaden and deepen our expertise, we remain committed to only working with the best and brightest talent, positioning ourselves as a specialized leader in this industry. Each of these individuals brings impressive leadership credentials, extensive research expertise and a strong client service track record.”

Rockefeller comes to TruColor from State Street Global Advisors where she spent 28 years, most recently as the global equities chief investment officer, overseeing management of assets worth more than $800 billion.

Dunn was previously director and senior portfolio manager for Mellon Capital Management/Franklin Portfolio Associates, where he managed more than $1 billion in an alternative equities portfolio. Prior to that, Dunn was manager of the quantitative R&D group at Wellington Management.
 
Smith, who brings nearly 20 years of investment experience to his new role, comes to TruColor from New York Life Investments where he was managing director and portfolio manager. He also served as senior quantitative portfolio manager at Gartmore Investment Management where he co-managed long/short market-neutral hedge funds.
