Former HSBC Hedge Fund Executive Joins Allenbridge

Jan 17 2013 | 8:30am ET

Almost a year after leaving HSBC Alternative Investment, Tim Gascoigne has landed at Allenbridge Investment Solutions.

Gascoigne is head of alternatives at the firm, which, along with its subsidiary AllenbridgeEpic, advises firms with more than £67 billion in assets.

At HSBC, Gascoigne managed its flagship GH fund of hedge funds, which had US$2.4 billion in assets under management. All told, Gascoigne oversaw about US$4 billion at HAIL. He left the firm last February.

“Tim brings considerable direct and practical experience managing portfolios of alternative investments for institutions, and we are delighted to have him on the team” said Odi Lahav, CEO of AllenbridgeIS. “We believe that the recent trends of institutional capital flowing into alternative investments will continue and we are committed to expanding and enhancing our capabilities in the sector.”

AIS is based in London and has an office in New York.
