Caliburn Capital Partners promotes member of Singapore team

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update – Caliburn Capital Partners LLP, a fund of hedge fund management company with offices in London, Geneva and Singapore has announced the election to equity partner of Richard Williams, a senior member of the Singapore team.

Richard has been with Caliburn Capital LLP since January 2006 and transferred to Singapore when Caliburn Capital opened their office in June 2008. Together with Mike Curry, previously the only Partner in Singapore, Richard has had a key role in building the Asian research network for Caliburn Capital and additionally is an Investment Manager for the Caliburn Greater China Fund.

Caliburn Capital’s Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Rowlands commenting on the announcement said: “Asia in general and Greater China in particular is a key focus for any global investor. The Asian entrepreneurial culture continues to drive the emergence of a hedge fund community which offers efficient ways to exploit the regional growth drivers. Caliburn Capital has responded to international institutional interest by meaningfully expanding its local presence in 2010. Martin Goulet, a senior investment analyst has transferred from our London office to further strengthen our Asian research. We have also established a local operational research expertise with the transfer of Kieran Murphy from the London team. Additionally Li Chao has been hired in Singapore as a research analyst and finally we have begun to build a marketing expertise with the transfer of Mayu Fujii from London. These developments in Singapore have been made possible by the success of our office since its establishment in 2008 and Richard Williams has been a key part of that success. It is therefore wholly appropriate that he has been elected to an equity partnership in our business”. The Caliburn Greater China Fund is a diversified portfolio of hedge funds focused on capturing a significant portion of the upside in financial markets in Greater China whilst limiting downside through exposure to inefficiencies in the rapidly developing local capital markets and active trading strategies.
