SWITZERLAND - Hedge fund of funds manager EIM has appointed seven new partners as part of a corporate reorganisation.
The firm has integrated its research and portfolio management and client service division.
Scott Metchick, Eric Bissonnier, Antonio Munoz, and Tim Schuler will form the group’s investment committee. Metchick will become the new chief investment officer. Nicholas Verwilghen and Philippe Almeras will be the new partners in client service, and William Glass will be a partner in the area of business development.
EIM founder Arpad Busson said: “Patrick Susse and I will continue to jointly manage EIM’s development strategy. However, placing responsibility for day-to-day management of EIM’s investment processes with the CIO and investment committee, will enable me to concentrate on the search and evaluation of talented hedge fund managers. In this regard I will remain an active contributor to EIM’s investment processes”. Susse will retain overall management responsibility for the group, assisted by Roland Biollay, who is in-charge of administration.
In addition, Christina Riva has been appointed as the general secretary, and Grégoire Tézé as EIM’s head of marketing.
