Brevan Howard, BlueCrest, Marshall Wace and Man Group top FN’s Most Influential
|August 12th, 2009||
|The Financial News recently released its 2009 FN 100 list of Europe’s most influential people in capital markets. Not surprisingly, leaders at many of the largest European hedge fund managers topped the hedge fund portion of the list. Leading the list is Brevan Brevan Howard Asset Management’s Alan Howard who managed to lock-in strong fund performances during a very turbulent year. He is followed by BlueCrest Capital Management’s co-founder Michael Platt and Marshall Wace Asset Management's Paul Marshall.|
Despite a turbulent year, Man Group plc’s CEO Peter Clarke made the list at number four for having a stable hand and an ability to adapt. At number five is the only fund of funds manager to make the list, Dexion Capital’s Robin Bowie, who managed to defeat liquidation demands by winning shareholder votes.
Number six on the list is GLG Partners’ Manny Roman who also braved it through a tough year. GLG infamously lost its star emerging markets hedge fund trader Greg Coffey to rival Moore Capital Management. Despite poor performance and client outflows, GLG weathered the storm.
Coming in at seven and eight are James Paradise and Andrea Angelone from the prime brokerage divisions at Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan, respectively. At nine is CQS Management Limited’s founder Michael Hintze.
The final spot is shared by portfolio managers Roger Guy and Guillaume Rambourg of Gartmore Investment Management. The strong performance of their Gartmore AlpaGen Cappella hedge fund helped Gartmore’s overall hedge fund business weather the storm.
