Ex-Winton CIO Beddall Launching New Investment Manager

Sep 1 2017 | 6:00pm ET

Former Winton Capital Management CIO Matthew Beddall is reportedly prepping a new asset management company that will both invest capital on behalf of clients as well as consult with other funds on data-driven tools.

The new firm, named Havelock London, also includes former Jupiter Asset Management executive Neil Carter as chief commercial officer, former Winton research director Kate Land as chief data scientist, and Winton’s former head of IT Alisdair Wren as CTO. 

The new company was incorporated in the U.K. on July 19, according to regulatory filings, and is based in London. Winton is reportedly seeding the new venture. 

Beddall was with Winton, David Harding’s $30 billion quantitative hedge fund, for seventeen years and left in late August to form Havelock. Specific details about the new company’s investment strategy or assets under management were not immediately available.
