Winton Capital plans to hire 100 personnel for expansion

Monday, March 03, 2014

Komfie Manalo, Opalesque Asia:

Europe’s fourth largest hedge fund firm Winton Capital announced plans to hire 100 additional personnel as it unveiled its expansion thrust this year, including launching five funds and opening offices in New York, Tokyo and Sydney.

Winton founder David Harding told The Journal the hedge fund wants to establish offices in New York, Tokyo and Sydney this year and he wants to hire sales personnel as well as researchers for the expansion. "To grow, you need to have several things in place: office space, management know-how, money and the will—we now have all those things in place," Harding was quoted as saying.

The planned five new funds include two that focus on European investors and two mutual funds that are aimed at U.S. investors. He said four of the five funds would be using Winton’s long-only equities strategy. Winton is still undecided on the strategy of the fifth fund.

Harding said Winton is also planning to launch more funds next year.

In January, the $25bn Winton Capital moved to its new office in West London that occupies some 70,000 square feet of space. The hedge fund also has offices in Oxford, Zurich and Hong Kong.
