For Superwoman, traditional asset management vehicles just won’t do. Nicola Horlick, the British fund manager given the supermoniker by London’s tabloids due to her ability to balance motherhood and a demanding career in asset management, said her Bramdean Asset Management is going whole hog into alternatives.
