London-based hedge fund firm Insparo Asset Management has appointed Andrew Dwiar to a specialist middle office role.
As middle office analyst, Dwiar is tasked with further streamlining Insparo’s front to back processes, from trade execution and capture to position reconciliation. He will work closely with chief operating officer Jon Laidlow and finance and operations manager James Gore on the day-to-day operations around Insparo’s funds, as well as providing assistance to the investment team.
Prior to joining Insparo in 2011, Dwiar worked with the global credit team at Thames River Capital. He started his career at Credit Suisse, where he spent three years within the OTC client services team, before moving to Bluebay Asset Management where he supported the investment grade and high yields desk.
“A robust operations set-up is crucial to the efficiency of an asset manager, and goes hand in hand with a successful management team,” said Laidlow. “Andrew’s experience in operations on the buy and sell sides, as well as his trading expertise, will ensure that the balance is well managed. This will help us to continue to work at our optimum, a trait our investors have come to expect.”
