Fairfield Greenwich Group has added a senior professional to its team at the hedge fund specialist's New York office. David Horn joins the firm as partner and chief global strategist and will also serve on the firm's board of directors.

Horn is a co-founder and former CEO of Graystone Partners, a $4.4 billion consulting firm acquired by Morgan Stanley in 1999. Following the purchase, Horn became head of global private client marketing and global senior relationship management for the firm’s largest private clients.

FGG founding partner Andrés Piedrahita said: “As our business continues to grow and mature, we saw the importance of adding a distinguished professional of David´s caliber to direct our global business strategy as we focus on building further institutional and ultra-high-net-worth relationships. We have great confidence that David will benefit this firm and its investors by leading us toward new market opportunities, and by working to manage the further expansion and improvement of our enterprise.”

Founded in 1983, Fairfield Greenwich currently manages some $16.4 billion in total assets.
