Threadneedle Names New Global Head of Hedge Funds

Oct 6 2009 | 1:00pm ET

Threadneedle has tapped investment industry vet Kris Haber to lead the firm’s hedge fund business globally, and its investment business in North America. 

Haber, who will take up the role in mid-November and be based in New York, will report directly to Crispin Henderson, Threadneedle’s chief executive officer. 

A well-known figure within the North American investment industry, Haber has more than 16 years of experience, most recently as a managing director at Lazard Asset Management, where he has spent the last 13 years. 

“Kris arrives at a pivotal time for Threadneedle’s growth.  His proven abilities and experience will help us to expand our reach in the U.S. while creating local relevance for our clients,” said Henderson.  “Demand for hedge fund expertise to complement core holdings has never been stronger, and Kris’ appointment will reinforce and build upon our current successes to maximize future opportunities for this important part of our business.”

Haber comments on his appointment: “This position provides an exciting challenge for me. Threadneedle has an enviable reputation in Europe, supported by a globally competitive product range and the integrity of the individuals who work there.  I was attracted to the opportunity to build on and expand Threadneedle’s global footprint.”
