OVS Appoints McEwen To Oversee Sales, Marketing

Jul 21 2011 | 7:23am ET

London-based OVS Capital, a European equity-focused event driven hedge fund, has appointed Nick McEwen as a partner responsible for sales and marketing.

McEwen comes to OVS from Revere Capital Advisors where he served as a managing director responsible for European sales and marketing.

In his new role, McEwen will support OVS founder and Chief Investment Officer Sam Morland and Chief Operating Officer Andrea Morrall.

McEwen’s hiring is the second of the year at OVS following the addition of Adam Lister to the investment team. Lister was previously a vice president in Citigroup’s UK investment banking team.

Said Morland: “We are pleased to make these additions to the team to capitalize on OVS’ early business momentum and to further enhance our investment, business and operational infrastructure. The opportunity for European event driven investing remains compelling.”

Morland, who had spent 10 years with the multi-billion dollar Dallas-based hedge fund HBK, launched OVS Capital in October 2010. The OVS investment team includes Adam Tyrrell who previously managed the event driven and relative value books for Henderson’s European and global multi-strategy hedge funds, as well as the enhanced index funds. The investment team also comprises Simon Broch, head trader and a former HBK employee.
