RWC has tapped Mark Walker as an analyst for its Luxembourg-domiciled RWC Global Horizon Fund.
Walker joins RWC from the global investment research division of Goldman Sachs where he was an equity analyst covering European telecom and satellite companies. Prior to Goldman, Walker worked for Redburn Partners.
In his new role, Walker will work with Louise Keeling who joined RWC in April as a partner to establish a long-only global equity team, having previously worked at Marathon Asset Management for six years with Jeremy Hosking managing a portfolio of global equities. Alice Jarman is the desk assistant to the team and joins RWC in September from Searchlight Capital Partners, having previously worked at Artemis Investment Management.
Said Keeling in a statement: “Our approach aims to exploit the time arbitrage which is available in the market as most investors are focused on the near term. This contrarian approach requires strength of belief as well as a fund structure and working environment that is reinforcing."
RWC manages $6.4 billion, up from $4.8 billion at the end of 2012, across equity income, activist equity, convertible bond and equity long/short strategies.
