Fulcrum hires new partner to head alternatives

Matthew-RobertsLondon-based Fulcrum Asset Management has made Matthew Roberts a partner with responsibility for the creation of a new alternatives group that will invest in real assets and credit.

Roberts joins from Willis Towers Watson where he was a portfolio manager for the Towers Watson Partners Fund and related strategies.

He previously ran the firm’s multi-asset and multi-strategy hedge fund research teams.

Fulcrum chief executive Andrew Stevens said: “Given our macro focus, clients are increasingly asking us for help with their real asset and credit allocations.

“Led by Matthew, the new alternatives group at Fulcrum will provide an attractive investment solution for our clients.”

Founded in 2004, Fulcrum Asset Management is an independent, employee-owned business with assets under management of £4.9 billion (€5.56 billion).
