Chiron Investment Management Expands Senior Executive Team

Sep 10 2015 | 8:19pm ET

Chiron Investment Management has bolstered its executive and investment teams by adding five seasoned professionals to its organization. 

Chiron, which recently registered with the SEC as an RIA and will initially pursue a multi-asset investment strategy that allocates assets among global equity and debt securities, brought three senior investment professionals, a chief compliance officer and risk officer aboard. 

Former Waddel & Reed CCO Kristen Richards and former Goldman Sachs risk executive Shailendra Panchal have joined the firm’s executive team as CCO and Chief Risk Officer, respectively.

Joining Chiron’s investment management team as portfolio managers are former Empirical Research Partners co-founder Brian Cho, who will be the head of quantitative research, and former Kornitzer Capital Management portfolio manager Grant Sarris, who will focus on U.S. equities. In addition, Peter Bianco, former head of trading for Caxton Associates, joined Chiron’s New York office as head of trading. 

“We are excited to announce these important additions to our team and look forward to leveraging Kristen and Shailendra’s extensive compliance and risk management experience as we further strengthen our institutional operations and investment offerings,” said Enrico Gaglioti, CEO of Chiron. 

“Brian, Grant, and Peter are seasoned professionals with over 50 years of combined industry experience in global markets,” added Ryan Caldwell, CIO of Chiron. “We expect them to be assets to our firm as we execute our investment strategy.” 

Chiron’s multi-asset investment strategy allocates assets among global equity and debt securities in order to provide attractive risk-adjusted total returns. Under normal market conditions, the company’s strategy will devote approximately 25-70% of assets to equity instruments and 20-50% to fixed income. The strategy intends to use a customized 60% /40% global equity/fixed income benchmark, according to a statement.  

Founded earlier this year by former Waddel & Reed mutual fund manager Ryan Caldwall and GPS Partners, Chiron Investment Management is a boutique investment management firm with offices in Leawood, Kansas and New York.
