Bryan Garnier Taps StormHarbour Vet For Euro Equities Fund

Feb 13 2012 | 7:32am ET

Paris-based Bryan Garnier Asset Management has hired former StormHarbour Alternative Investments employee Epiphanios Michael as manager for it European equities long/short fund.

Michael will have full responsibility for investment and research on the Leadership en Actions Fund.

Michael was an analyst on European stocks at London-based StormHarbour until February 2012. Prior to that he spent two years with Macquarie Capital Partners as a corporate finance analyst and from 2006 to 2009 was an analyst covering Asian stocks at Prodigy Capital Partners (long/short Asia Fund) in London.

Said Vania Mareuse, BGAM managing partner, in a statement: “We at BGAM are extremely happy that Epi is joining us at this stage of growth in our business and welcome him as a key member of the fund management team.”

Michael said he intends to use his “top-down economic/industry themes to uncover public equities that face significant shifts in earnings, both positive and negative. This strategy has served me well as a hedge fund analyst over the past several years, especially in 2011, and there continue to be significant opportunities in Europe where structural imbalances amongst countries and industries continue.”

BGAM is part of Bryan Garnier & Co, a privately owned European Investment bank focused on European Growth companies, with offices in Paris, London, New York, Geneva and New Dehli.
