Aug 10 2017 | 7:32pm ET

London-based global alternative asset manager Dalton Strategic Partnership (DSP) has named former Advenis executive and veteran quantitative specialist Thomas Dionysopoulos as a partner in the firm.

In his new role, Dionysopoulos will be tasked with building the company’s systemic macro capabilities, DSP said in a statement. He joins from Advenis Investment Management, where he was head of quantitative strategies and had full responsibility for their systematic macro funds since 2010. Beforehand, he traded proprietary capital for four years at Citigroup and Société Générale. He began his career in 1999 at AXA IM, where he was head of project management and technical solutions before joining HSBC Asset Management in 2003 as deputy head of quantitative strategy and research.

Dionysopoulos’ appointment comes as DSP sees growing demand for systematic strategies, particularly in the macro space, noted DSP CEO Wenceslas von Liechtenstein in the statement. “Thomas’ arrival signals the start of an exciting new growth phase for Dalton Strategic Partnership. His extensive academic and investment experience, combined with a close cultural fit will be key to the development of our systematic macro offering,” von Liechtenstein added.

DSP was founded in 2002 by former Mercury Asset Management co-chairman Andrew Dalton. The firm is home to the Melchior range of institutional funds and specializes in absolute return, long-only equity and credit strategies, managing some $1.5 billion as of June 2017.
