European hedge fund firm Aquila Capital has named Stuart MacDonald as managing director to assist in developing the firm’s growing institutional business.
MacDonald joins Aquila Capital from Gems Advisors, having previously worked in a senior capacity at firms such as Henderson Global Investors, West Merchant Bank and Buchanan Partners. In addition to many years of developing UK and international institutional clients, MacDonald hosts the award-winning investment radio show, The Naked Short Club, on London’s Resonance 104.4FM.
“Aquila Capital is an exciting opportunity. It was one of the first alternative investment managers to use UCITS vehicles without compromising the performance of its strategies,” said MacDonald. “Aquila is also active and innovative in the growing arena of real assets, often with an SRI slant that is increasingly significant to investors.”
Roland Schulz, managing director at Aquila Capital, added: “I am delighted to welcome Stuart to the team. Stuart is a highly respected leader with extensive industry knowledge and an enviable track record in business development in alternative investment management.”
Aquila Capital—which has offices in Europe and Asia—boasts over $5.3 billion in assets under management. The company firm specializes in the management of market-independent multi-asset, multi-strategy investment strategies that are driven by global macro trends and provide above average, long-term returns.
