GLG Adds Stratton Street Vet To Japan Funds

Jul 17 2014 | 9:50am ET

GLG Partners has bolstered its Japanese stock team with Stratton Street Capital’s Adrian Edwards.

The Man Group unit named Edwards a portfolio manager. He’ll co-manage the firm’s £1.3 billion Japan CoreAlpha and US$4.35 billion Japan CoreAlpha Equity funds, the firm said, working alongside Jeffrey Atherton and Neil Edwards.

Edwards’ hire comes as GLG seeks to increase staff “to reflect the substantial inflows into the portfolios,” GLG Japanese stock chief Stephen Harker, Edwards’ new boss, said.
