The Rohatyn Group Names Gu To Lead Beyond-BRIC EM and Frontier Market Strategies

Aug 23 2017 | 11:11pm ET

Nick Rohatyn’s emerging-market asset management company Rohatyn Group has brought former Caravel Flagship Fund portfolio manager Beidi Gu aboard to lead the company’s public equity investment strategies in beyond-BRIC emerging and frontier markets.

Gu will be based in New York, according to a company statement. Her investment approach targets overlooked, under-researched markets and companies, the company added, which aligns well with Rohatyn’s emphasis on investment strategies that capitalize on structural inefficiency and special opportunity. 

Gu brings more than 12 years of experience to her new role. Before joining Rohatyn, she served as the global portfolio manager for The Caravel Flagship Fund, a long-only equity fund specialized in beyond BRIC emerging and frontier equities. Gu joined Caravel in January 2010, originally serving as the Director of Asia. Her experience also includes time as a research associate at WRA Investment, a Tiger Management global long/short fund, focusing on China and other Asia equities. She began her career as a research associate in Morgan Stanley’s Financial Institutions Team.

Based in New York, the The Rohatyn Group was founded in 2002 by Rohatyn, who previously built JP Morgan’s emerging markets business. Since inception, the company has grown from a single hedge fund to a fully diversified asset manager offering private equity, real estate, infrastructure, fixed income & currencies, and hedge fund strategies.
