Ballingal's Barker Lands At City Financial, To Launch Macro Fund

Oct 15 2013 | 12:45pm ET

Geoffrey Barker, who managed Ballingal Investment Advisers' US$200 million Pacific Macro Fund until this summer, is returning with a new Asian macro fund.

Barker's new fund will debut at London-based City Financial Investment Co. in the first quarter. He will work out of City Financial's Hong Kong office.

"Geoffrey is one of the most respected managers in Hong Kong, with a strong track record," CEO Andrew Williams said. "City Financial has long since recognized the potential of hedge fund managers based in Hong Kong and I look forward to working closely with Geoffrey to establish a strong presence for the group in this region.”

Barker managed the Ballingal strategy to a 14.1% annualized return between its 2006 inception and his exit from the firm.
