North Asset Management, the London-based alternative investment management firm, today said Gerard Gardner is joining the firm as a partner. Gardner most recently worked at Goldman Sachs International in London, where his role was to develop the firm’s foreign-exchange franchise, focusing on hedge funds and leveraged accounts.

“Gerard’s role at North will be multifaceted, focusing on strategy as well as liaising with policy makers,” George Papamarkakis, chief investment officer, said. “Given a career devoted to the fundamental macro market and his extensive industry contacts, he will add value to North in both the investment management process as well as with external relationships.”
