Equinox expands portfolio management team

RELATED TOPICS​

Equinox Financial Group has added Afroz Qadeer and Sue Osborne to the firm’s investment management committee.

 
Qadeer focuses on developing alternative strategies for retail and institutional investors and Osborne spearheads research efforts for multi-advisor alternative investment portfolios and managed futures strategies.
 
Qadeer also serves as president and chief investment officer of Equinox Institutional Asset Management, and Osborne is director of research. Equinox Institutional Asset Management is the new name of Tapestry Asset Management, which was acquired by Equinox in January. Equinox Institutional will continue to specialise in the construction, implementation and monitoring of multi-manager alternative investment portfolios and managed futures strategies.
 
Qadeer has focused on alternative investment management since 1993. He co-founded Tapestry Asset Management in 2002 and served as chief executive officer and co-chief investment officer. He has extensive expertise in hedge fund research and portfolio management, and has held tenures with Commodities Corporation/Goldman Sachs, Optima Fund Management, and Lake Partners. His accomplishments include the launch of eight multi-manager funds, management of 20 multi-manager portfolios covering a diverse range of alternatives, and management of four hedge fund portfolios with assets of approximately USD2bn.
 
Osborne has over 20 years of alternative investment experience. She was director of research and partner of Tapestry Asset Management and has held senior positions in hedge fund research and portfolio management at Hamilton & Co., Commodities Corporation/Goldman Sachs, Lake Partners, and Greenwich Associates.
 
Effective 1 April, Osborne assumed the portfolio team responsibilities previously managed by Brian Bell. Bell continues to serve as director of research of The Bornhoft Group (TBG) in a full-time capacity.
 
Richard Bornhoft, chief investment officer of Equinox Fund Management, says: "I am pleased that our expanding investment management team at Equinox enables Brian to devote 100 per cent of his time to research at TBG. Equinox and TBG have long enjoyed a synergistic relationship. The expansion of Equinox’s investment management team will undoubtedly benefit both Equinox and TBG."
