RAB Capital's former CEO has gone spook.
Charles Kirwan-Taylor, who left the embattled hedge fund in January after leading its downsizing and delisting from London's Alternative Investment Market last year, joined corporate intelligence firm Hakluyt & Co. the same month. As befits Hakluyt's business, what exactly Kirwan-Taylor is doing for Hakluyt is unclear, Financial News reports.
What is clear is that Kirwan-Taylor joined a firm in the uncomfortable position of being linked to a scandal in China. Occasional Hakluyt consultant Neil Heywood was found dead in Chongqing in November; Heywood was close to Communist party boss Bo Xilai. Xilai's wife has now been arrested for Heywood's murder and Xilai himself suspended from the party.
Kirwan-Taylor spent less than a year-and-a-half at the helm of RAB. Prior to taking the top job, he was the firm's CFO.
