Monday, September 09, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Darren Walker has been named a partner at Finisterre Capital, the $1.6bln long/short emerging market total return specialist.

Mr Walker was previously Managing Director at JP Morgan Chase, where he managed an emerging markets portfolio with an emphasis on sovereign debt, local rates and foreign exchange. He left JP Morgan Chase in March 2012 and joined Finisterre in June last year, as a portfolio manager on the Global Opportunity Fund.

Prior to joining JP Morgan 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 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.

Paul Crean, founding partner and Chief Investment Officer of Finisterre Capital said: ‘“Darren brings a wealth of investment experience and a background in emerging markets that is outstanding. His appointment will further strengthen the partnership and put Finisterre in a strong position for the future.”
