Adrian Lee & Partners makes three key hires

Adrian Lee & Partners, the independent asset manager specializing in quantitative-led currency management for institutional investors, has hired three new portfolio managers as part of the firm’s strategy to expand.

Keith Zaccaria joins AL&P as senior portfolio manager from State Street Global Advisors, where he held the position of senior portfolio analyst in the passive equity team. He was previously a portfolio manager at Weiser Capital Management and AllianceBernstein LP, both in New York. Rakesh Odedra, who previously worked for six years at Oxford Economics, Weavering Capital and 4Cast, joins AL&P as an international economist and portfolio manager.

The founders of Weavering Capital, the former London-based hedge fund management firm, are on trial in a civil case that commenced last week, relating to the collapse of the firm’s flagship Cayman Island fund, which lost investors more than $530million in 2009.

Maria Isaeva also joins AL&P as portfolio manager, coming from APG Asset Management in the Netherlands, where she spent more than three years managing overlay portfolios for the APG equity platform.

AL&P, founded in 1999, manages assets in excess of $8.5 billion from its offices in London and Dublin for clients in the US, the UK, Europe and Australia. Returns in 2010 and 2009 were 2.4% and 4.9% respectively.

The firm monitors 32 currencies and invests using a quantitative research shared strategy. Using research-driven valuation analysis, AL&P’s portfolio managers seek to generate returns by exploiting departures from long-term currency equilibriums derived by fundamental economic factors.
