Dawn Kendall has left her role as senior fund manager at multi-manager Architas, Investment Week can reveal.
The group said it will be reallocating her research and fund management responsibilities across the existing team until a replacement for her role is found.
Kendall (pictured) was appointed to the Architas multi-manager team in September 2008 to head up product development and investment strategy.
She subsequently focused on fixed income and alternatives, and co-managed mandates for both the Architas MM Portfolio range and the Winterthur Elite fund of funds range alongside Sheldon MacDonald.
Hans Georgeson, managing director, said: "Dawn has contributed greatly to the growth and profile of the business, having joined Architas when it was launched over four years ago. We are sorry to see her go and wish her the best in her future career."
Kendall joined Architas from IAM, a fund of hedge funds, where she was investment director in charge of absolute return products.
She has also worked at Newton Investment Management as a fixed income fund manager.
