Man Seeding Chief Out

Jun 23 2014 | 8:55am ET

Patric de Gentile-Williams, the head of seeding at the Man Group’s fund of hedge funds arm, has left the firm.

De Gentile-Williams took his exit last month, after seven years at FRM—which Man acquired in 2012, five years after he was named chief operating officer of its seeding business, FRM Capital Advisors. Previously, he founded hedge fund incubator PCE Investors.

Man, which recently acquired U.S. fund of funds Pine Grove Asset Management, will not name a successor to de Gentile-Williams, although Financial News reports that it will continue seeding nascent hedge funds.

De Gentile-Williams is now serving as an independent adviser on matters asset management, he reports on his LinkedIn profile.
