U.K.-based Clareville Capital said Angus Donaldson will join the firm in September to back up David Yarrow, founder, in portfolio and risk management, as well as taking responsibility for operations, compliance and financial control.
Donaldson was head of U.K. equity sales at Dresdner Kleinwort from 1998 to 2002, before leaving to establish Corin Capital—a U.K.-focused hedge fund, which reportedly closed in March.
