Former Gartmore Exec. Joins Matrix

Sep 20 2011 | 12:13pm ET

The former head of product at Gartmore Group has taken a similar position at hedge fund Matrix Asset Management.

Rebecca Ledlie was named head of product and marketing at Matrix, where she will lead the firm's "ambitious growth strategy" for its asset management unit. At Gartmore, which she left after an eight-year stint following its acquisition by Henderson Global Investors earlier this year, Ledlie was in charge of the development and maintenance of its product range. She also formerly worked at Deutsche Asset Management.

"Having worked with her for many years at Gartmore, I know she has a unique understanding of the marketplace, particularly in the hedge fund space," Matrix CEO Angus Woolhouse said.
