Monday, October 15, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update:Aquila Capital, has announced the appointment of industry expert, Stuart MacDonald as Managing Director to assist in developing Aquila’s growing institutional business.

Stuart joins Aquila Capital from Gems Advisors, having previously worked in a senior capacity at firms such as Henderson Global Investors, West Merchant Bank and Buchanan Partners. In addition to many years of developing UK and international institutional clients, Stuart hosts the award-winning investment radio show, “The Naked Short Club” on London’s Resonance 104.4FM.

“I am delighted to welcome Stuart to the team. Stuart is a highly respected leader with extensive industry knowledge and an enviable track record in business development in alternative investment management. I’m confident that his proven expertise and broad experience in the market will support our international growth strategy as Aquila continues to expand in Europe and beyond," said Roland Schulz, Managing Director at Aquila Capital.

“Aquila Capital is an exciting opportunity. It was one of the first alternative investment managers to use UCITS vehicles without compromising the performance of its strategies, e.g. for its Risk Parity funds and a “trend-plus” CTA fund. Aquila is also active and innovative in the growing arena of Real Assets, often with an SRI slant that is increasingly significant to investors," said Stuart MacDonald, Managing Director.
