Ex-JPMorgan MD Joins Finisterre

Jun 26 2012 | 9:32am ET

Darren Walker, formerly a managing director at JPMorgan Chase, has joined long/short emerging market specialist Finisterre Capital as a portfolio manager.

Walker will assist Finisterre partner Yan Swiderski, lead portfolio manager on the firm’s Global Opportunity Fund.

At JPMorgan, which he left in March 2012, Walker managed an emerging markets portfolio with a focus on sovereign debt, local rates and foreign exchange. Before that, he was a managing director at Credit Suisse, where he started in the Russian local market business before taking responsibility for the EEMEA trading operation, handling FX, local rates, derivative products and external debt. He subsequently became the co-head of the Global EM ex-Brazil business and in his final year at Credit Suisse, managed an EM proprietary risk portfolio.

“Our intention with this appointment has been to strengthen the management team on the Global Opportunity Fund,” said Swiderski in a statement. “Darren brings a wealth of experience and a background in emerging markets trading that is unparalleled. I look forward greatly to working with him.”

Established in 2002, London-based Finisterre manages emerging markets funds in a variety of asset classes including sovereign debt, local currency debt and foreign exchange.
