Alternative investment specialist Trium Capital has hired former Eclectica Asset Management manager Thomas Roderick.
At Eclectica, Roderick worked alongside founder Hugh Hendry for five years between 2012 and 2017 when the hedge fund closed in September that year.
He started his career at Brevan Howard in 2008 and spent four years at the firm before joining Eclectica.
At Trium, he will manage an emerging markets-focused discretionary macro portfolio.
Shenan Dhanani, co-head of Trium Capital, said: "The addition of Thomas boosts our suite of specialist strategies.
"Thomas has a deep understanding of emerging markets and his track record of generating alpha in this space is exemplary, delivering annualised returns in excess of 8% with low volatility."
David Slater, portfolio manager at Trium, commented: "Thomas joins Trium bringing experience from managing assets successfully at top tier firms.
"His strategy and experience, especially of emerging markets, is highly complementary to the strategies already employed here at Trium and we feel further completes the coverage across assets and markets we are building here."
Roderick added: "The current and continued higher volatility environment should lead to higher potential returns for global macro managers.
"Although EM focused, the strategy I deploy is not restricted to being long EM assets and I do not anticipate a high correlation to other macro funds, including other EM macro funds.
"The ruptures in EM this year has led to large distortions which turn into large opportunities if you are able to exploit them."
