Oct 20 2011 | 1:26pm ET

Zurich-based Heieck Siebrecht Capital Advisors has hired two new employees for its Varus Fund, a long-short equity fund focusing on German mid- and large cap companies.

Jelena Davidson, who joins HSCA as head of investor relations, comes from Geneva-based UBP Asset Management. She has specialized in funds sales, marketing and client acquisition, with a focus on traditional and alternative investments.

Aria Ameri, who will work as an analyst on the Varus Fund, is experienced in German and European equities and has previously worked with HSCA founders Stefan Heieck and Frank Siebrecht as an intern.

"We are very happy that Jelena and Aria are joining the team,” said Heieck. “As head of investor relations, Jelena will be in charge of our communications with current and new investors and is an excellent fit to enhance one part of our company. Aria has previously worked alongside us and, as a permanent member of the team, will be supporting the portfolio management of the Varus Fund as an analyst."
 
HSCA is the investment advisor of the Varus Fund, which invests in pair trades and catalyst-driven long and shorts. Investments are based on quantitative and qualitative analysis and strong competence in German stocks.
