Leo Fund Managers Names Head Of Sales

Nov 20 2012 | 5:27am ET

London-based hedge fund and private equity firm Leo Fund Managers has named Ben Davis as head of sales and investor relations.

Davis joins from StormHarbour Alternative Investments where he was partner and head of investor relations. Prior to that, Davis spent six years in both alternative investments marketing and research with a focus on European equity related products.

Stefano Roma, director and head of asset management said, “This hire completes the build out of the non-investment side of the business. We are confident with our infrastructure now in place complimenting our investment team, that together we will win business from even the most demanding institutional investors.”

Davis added, “Leo Fund Managers has a very credible 12 year track record in managing equity long-short funds and extensive experience in private equity. Leo offers the cohesive team, strong independent risk management and flexible investment approach that investors demand in the current environment. This is a very exciting time to be joining the company given the peer group leading performance of Leo’s flagship global equity long-short fund, and the recent launch of Leo Active, a UCITS IV compliant equity long-short fund, which has also performed strongly.”
