Palladio Alternative Research hires Geneva based analyst

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update – Swiss-based Palladio Alternative Research SA is pleased to announce that it has hired Katherine Hill as a Managing Director for the Geneva subsidiary.

Palladio’s business model is designed to provide insightful outsourcing solutions for hedge fund research, due diligence and advisory, mainly to institutional clients. It will include manager identification, due diligence, follow-up and tailor-made proposals as well as hedge fund audits.

Katherine was most recently a Senior Hedge Fund Analyst at Saad Financial Services, a family office in Geneva. Previously, she was based in New York City as a Director at Wedge Alternatives and

Palladio Alternative Research SA is headed by Sarah Clar-Boson, founding partner and a former Senior Hedge Fund Analyst at Optifin SA and UBP Alternative Asset Management Group. The firm's two other partners include successful established hedge fund entrepreneurs: Christophe Reech, CEO and Chairman of Reech AiM Group, awarded Emerging Manager of the year 2009 by Institutional Investor, and Jean-Marc Emden, CEO of Nassau-based Autana Capital, who has extensive experience in alternative investments since 1992. "I am excited about the opportunity to work with Sarah and expand the business. We have known each other for 4 years and have a mutual respect for one another’s work, professional opinion and conduct. Palladio provides tailor-made services as well as research on a fund by fund basis with no conflicts of interest to all investor types. The company was created at a time when investors realized their disappointment with large research and advisory firms that did not steer them clear of frauds, liquidity traps, or biases. Independent research and integrity are what we will be known for and I am happy to be a part of this growing team.”
