Thames River Capital has hired a former regulatory technical specialist as compliance and risk manager.
Graeme Pollok served as technical specialist with the U.K. Financial Services Authority’s alternative investments team. Before joining the regulator in 2005, Pollok was a portfolio manager at Montpelier Asset Management.
