Former Eclectica manager joins Trium Capital
Trium Capital, a London-based alternative investment specialist, has hired former Eclectica Asset Management portfolio manager, Thomas Roderick.
Roderick has joined Trium to manage an emerging markets-focussed discretionary macro portfolio.
Working alongside Eclectica founder Hugh Hendry for five years, Roderick managed a global macro portfolio at the group, with a particular focus on global FX, fixed income and equity markets. Prior to this, Roderick held a number of positions at Brevan Howard.
Shenan Dhanani, co-head of Trium Capital, says: “At Trium we have cultivated a truly collaborative environment for portfolio managers, allowing managers to manage strategies that have demonstrated consistent alpha generation. The addition of Thomas boosts our suite of specialist strategies.”
“Thomas has a deep understanding of emerging markets and his track record of generating alpha in this space is exemplary, delivering annualised returns in excess of 8 per cent with low volatility.”
David Slater, portfolio manager at Trium, says “Thomas joins Trium bringing experience from managing assets successfully at top tier firms. His strategy and experience, especially of emerging markets, is highly complementary to the strategies already employed here at Trium and we feel further completes the coverage across assets and markets we’re building here.”
Roderick says: “The current and continued higher volatility environment should lead to higher potential returns for global macro managers. Although EM focussed, the strategy I deploy is not restricted to being long EM assets and I don’t anticipate a high correlation to other macro funds, including other EM macro funds. The ruptures in EM this year has led to large distortions which turn into large opportunities if you are able to exploit them. I am excited to be working in an environment allowing managers to harness their potential and look forward to helping Trium deliver on its long-term vision.”
