Finisterre Opportunity Fund appoints senior portfolio manager

Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: Finisterre Capital, the long/short emerging market total return specialist, has appointed Darren Walker, formerly Managing Director at JPMorgan Chase as portfolio manager on the Finisterre Global Opportunity Fund. Mr Walker will report to Yan Swiderski, a Finisterre Partner and the lead Portfolio Manager on the Global Opportunity Fund.

  At JP Morgan, Mr Walker managed an emerging markets portfolio with an emphasis on sovereign debt, local rates and foreign exchange. He left JPMorgan Chase in March 2012 and started work at Finisterre this month.

  Prior to joining JPMorgan Chase in 2010, Mr Walker was a Managing Director at Credit Suisse, where he was employed from 2000. At Credit Suisse, he started in the Russian Local Market business, based in both London and Moscow, before taking responsibility for the EEMEA trading operation in 2003, handling FX, local rates, derivative products and external debt. He subsequently became the Co-Head of the Global EM ex-Brazil business from 2006 until 2009, co-managing the 150+ person global sales, trading, coverage, structuring and primary issuance business. In his final year at Credit Suisse he managed an EM proprietary risk portfolio.

  “Our intention with this appointment has been to strengthen the management team on the Global Opportunity Fund,” said Swiderski. “Darren brings a wealth of experience and a background in Emerging Markets trading that is unparalleled. I look forward greatly to working with him.”
