Horizon21 Picks Ex-JPMorgan Trader Up From The Beach

Apr 25 2008 | 11:42am ET

Switzerland’s Horizon21 has added former JPMorgan Chase trader Mark Bamber as a principal in its Hong Kong office.

Bamber will focus on business development in the Asia-Pacific region, marketing its wares to institutional investors and family offices, Asian Investor reports. He succeeds Stewart Aldcroft, who retired this month.

Bamber spent 15 years with JPMorgan and Robert Fleming & Co., which Chase Manhattan acquired in 2000. After serving as head of equities and trading for Asia ex-Japan, he left the firm last year “to take a year on the beach running triathlons,” joining Horizon21 only after his latest hedge fund venture failed to take off.
