Brevan Howard Vet Stonberg To Winton

Mar 27 2014 | 11:18am ET

A former Brevan Howard Asset Management partner has joined Winton Capital Management.

Stephen Stonberg was named a senior adviser at the quantitative hedge fund, Wealth Manager reports. He joins the firm from Schroders in New York, where he has served as a consultant since leaving his post as head of product management for alternatives at Credit Suisse last year.

Prior to joining the bank in 2011, Stonberg spent five years at Brevan, where he was head of its U.S. office.

Winton is currently expanding into the U.S., opening an office in New York this summer. The US$25 billion hedge fund is also planning new bases in Australia and Japan, and hopes to hire 100 new staffers this year. Winton also plans to launch five new funds this year.
