Stuart Davies, former managing director and global head of investments at Ivy Asset Management, has joined Ramius Fund of Funds Group as a managing director and chief investment officer.

Davies, who begins at Ramius on Jan 20, will also be a member of the firm’s investment management committee.

Former CIO Thomas Strauss will remain chief executive officer of Ramius and a member of its investment management committee.
