Dylan Tinker joins Venus Capital as portfolio manager

Venus Capital Management, an investment management company specialising in emerging markets investments, has appointed Dylan Tinker as a portfolio manager.
 
'We are all excited to have Dylan join our team,' says Vik Mehrotra, chief executive of Venus Capital. 'His experience and skill set, developed while working with some of the top firms in Asia, is a tremendous resource and provides us with additional depth and expertise.'
 
Tinker will run the Venus Asian Absolute Return Fund - a market-neutral equity fund that uses quantitative value-biased strategies with low beta-adjusted net exposures across markets.  In keeping with Venus' track record of producing alpha in Asian markets, the fund will seek to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns that are uncorrelated to indexes and markets.
 
Tinker previously worked at Tudor Capital, based in Singapore, and was a regional sector analyst at UBS in Asia.
 
'I am thrilled to be working with Venus Capital,' says Tinker. 'I've thought highly of the team and their quantitative approach for many years and am excited to be able to launch a similar product on Venus' strong platform.'
