New moves among Asian hedge fund teams
05 Oct 2012
More hedge fund moves to report, in an alternatives jobs market that has remained fairly quiet throughout the second and third quarter. Remi Colinmaire joined Alphadyne Asset Management in a volatility portfolio management role during the summer. Alphadyne was founded by CIO Philippe Khuong Huu and CIO of Asia Rates Fund Bart Broadman.
Colinmaire is an ex-Goldman Sachs equity derivatives trader, who used to head volatility flow trading on European equity indices, based in London. He joins Alphadyne from RSR Capital, where he was co-founder of that firm's $50m volatility strategy, which is named Caerus Arbitrage Asia Fund. It was down 11.75% during 2011.
The other founders of RSR Capital are Rob Webb, who has moved to Citi to run equity derivatives and Serge Handijan, who is still at the firm. The strategy of RSR is rumoured to now include a high frequency statistical arbitrage orientation.
Also, Linda Cai has joined equities at LIM Advisors having joined George Long's Hong Kong-based house from Samena Capital. Prior to Samena, she worked at Goldman Sachs. LIM Advisors' flagship fund is the LIM Asia Multistrategy Fund which is flat to date in 2012, having recorded a similar performance in 2011.
No longer helping Joe Zhou's Hong Kong-based Ortus Fund, is the external capital raiser Claudia Scott. The emplaced investor relations team at the highly successful macro-themed foreign exchange trading hedge fund continues to be headed by Janice Tang.
