Two new deputy chairmen and investor-appointee for AIMA council

Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), the global hedge fund association, has announced two Deputy Chairmen from its existing Directors and also an investor-appointee to the AIMA Council.

The new Deputy Chairmen are Andrew Bastow, Head of Government & Regulatory Affairs and General Counsel, Winton Capital Management; and Chris Pearce, Asia COO, Marshall Wace Asia Ltd. The new investor-appointee is Robert De Rito, Head of Financial Risk Management, APG Asset Management US Inc.

Andrew Bastow has been Winton’s General Counsel since 2005 and is responsible for spearheading the firm’s engagement with regulatory bodies and lawmakers in Europe, the USA and the Far East. He was elected to the AIMA Council in September 2010 and is also a member of the Hedge Fund Lawyers Association.

Chris Pearce has been COO of Asia for global long-short manager Marshall Wace since 2006. Having opened the firm’s Hong Kong office, he oversees operations in the Asia region. He was first elected to the AIMA Council in September 2010 and is Chairman of AIMA’s Pan-Asia Regional Advisory Council. He also sits on the AIMA Hong Kong Executive Committee.

Robert De Rito has global, risk-management responsibility for APG’s hedge fund and fixed income investments as well as responsibility for real estate and other alternative investments for the Americas. He was previously an elected member of the AIMA Council from 2010-2012. He is also a member of AIMA’s Investor Steering Committee and a member of the Board of Directors of the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association.

Kathleen Casey, AIMA Non-Executive Chairman, said: “We are extremely fortunate to have secured such outstanding Deputy Chairmen as Andrew Bastow and Chris Pearce. They both bring extensive experience to the role and I am most grateful for their further commitment to AIMA which I know will prove invaluable. As senior executives at two of the industry’s most prominent hedge fund management firms internationally, their appointment also underscores AIMA’s strength and leadership as a truly global organization and representative of the industry.

“I am also delighted to welcome Robert De Rito back to the AIMA Council. His appointment underlines the important contribution that the investor community continues to make within AIMA, and I am sure that he will bring significant value to the board once more.”
