David Gorton is the Chief Investment Officer of the new venture with responsibility for the management and development of trading strategies based upon a suite of systematic models which have been running capital since May 2006 including capital allocated from Brevan Howard Master Fund since 1 March 2010.

DG Systematic Trading LLP will be FSA authorised and will act as investment manager of Brevan Howard Systematic Trading Fund, a systematic trading fund which utilises Brevan Howard's risk management and execution platform.

For the period from 1 March to 30 September this strategy has delivered returns on allocated capital of 9.3% net of fees.

We are delighted to achieve this in partnership with David Gorton and an experienced fund management team with an outstanding track record in systematic trading."
