Cantab Adds Ex-Lansdowne COO

Aug 6 2013 | 9:48am ET

Cantab Capital Partners has added the former chief operating officer of Lansdowne Partners to focus on its operations.

Adam Glinsman was named managing partner of the quantitative hedge fund, a new position at the firm. He is charged with the management of the non-investment side of Cantab's business and will work alongside firm founder Ewan Kirk.

"We are really excited that Adam is joining us, because of the decades of experience he brings and the value he will add to our business and investors," Kirk said. "Importantly, he is culturally a good fit for a technology-driven financial firm like Cantab."

Glinsman served as Lansdowne's COO from 2003 until his retirement in 2009. Since then, he has continued to advise the firm's flagship hedge fund as a consultant.
