Christopher Carroll joins UK based fund manager’s New York office
Fulcrum Asset Management, a global provider of diversified macro investment products, today announced that Christopher Carroll has joined the firm as Head of Hedge Fund Business Development. He will be joining an expanding US team which is run by Paul Seaton, Head of North America.
London-based Fulcrum has had a presence in the US for a decade, but Carroll is the first professional enlisted to focus on presenting the firm’s higher volatility hedge fund product to North American institutions.
The investment team at Fulcrum is led by Suhail Shaikh, Chief Investment Officer, who joined Fulcrum in 2005 from Goldman Sachs.
“Chris brings to the table a sophisticated understanding of global macro strategies, and deep insight of how institutional investors utilize macro in their asset allocation mix to meet their investment objectives across market cycles.” said Shaikh.
Carroll joins Fulcrum from Caxton Associates, where he spent nearly a decade and led the North American asset-raising effort.
“It became clear to me that Fulcrum has developed an innovative and differentiated approach to macro, which has been a collaborative effort across the investment, research, quant, and risk management teams,” said Carroll.
“This is a seasoned investment team that will be able to take advantage of a continuously changing market environment and I look forward to being a part of it.”
