Swiss fund of hedge funds EIM has tapped Robert Phillips as global head of equity long/short research.

Phillips comes to EIM from UBP Alternative Investments in New York, where he served as head of global equity long/short strategies and deputy head of research. Phillips was previously a director, equity strategy head and portfolio manager of the Merrill Lynch Equity Long/Short Fund and spent time as a vice president and senior research analyst at Starview Capital Management and as a client portfolio manager at JPMorgan & Co.

“We view Rob’s addition as a further commitment to enhancing the depth of our investment team,” said Arpad Busson, chairman and founder of EIM. “Rob is considerably experienced in the equity space, first as a fundamental equity analyst and then for more than 10 years doing manager research in the long/short equity space. He will be an extremely valuable addition to our overall investment process. The equity allocation is a critical component of our solutions-based approach and we look forward to his essential contributions.”

Philips has joined EIM Management (USA) in New York where he will report to Adam Prestandrea, co-head of investments. He will also serve on the firm’s global asset allocation committee.
