CQS Adds Pensions Expert As Distribution Chief

Aug 5 2008 | 12:18pm ET

CQS’s hiring spree continues with the addition of a Fidelity International pensions expert.

Martin Harris has joined the multi-strategy hedge fund shop as its first head of global distribution and services. In his new post, Harris will both coordinate the $10 billion London firm’s worldwide distribution teams as well as its investor servicing.

Harris in February left Fido, where he served as business head for British defined-benefit pension plans.

Over the past six months, CQS has added between 40 and 45 new staff members, and now employs about 290.
