Effie Datson directs the Bank’s dbSelect managed accounts platform, which offers daily liquidity and liquid hedge fund strategies to investors, and as part of this provides critical input into the Bank’s family of UCITS hedge fund launches.
Anita Nemes is Global Head of Capital Introduction, with responsibility for matching hedge fund investment opportunities to potential investors. In this role Nemes also oversees the Bank’s Alternative Investment Survey (AIS), which canvasses over 500 investors managing $1.3 trillion. The HFJ praised the survey stating "it proved prescient in its forecast of strong hedge fund AUM growth in 2011, as within weeks Hedge Fund Research announced that the $2 billion threshold had been passed."
