People moves: Market wizard conjures up new role
Hathersage Capital Management, the discretionary absolute return currency manager set up by market legend Bill Lipschutz, has hired Momtchil Pojarliev as director and senior portfolio manager. In this newly created role Pojarliev will report and work alongside Lipschutz, one of the superstar traders featured in Jack Schwager’s book The new market wizards.
Pojarliev was most recently the head of currencies at London-based Hermes Investment Management, which runs BT’s pension scheme, the largest in the UK.
“Momtchil’s experience and his work in the area of currency alpha measurement and production match well with our focus at Hathersage. We are confident that our investors will benefit greatly,” says Lipschutz.
