Man Group, the London-based alternative asset management company, announced three new U.S. hires today.
Todd Kata will join the firm as a senior analyst on the equities team within hedge fund research. He will be based in New York and report to Robin Lowe, head of equities. He will be responsible for sourcing and monitoring long/short equity funds. Prior to joining Man, he was a managing director at Calypso Capital, a New York-based long/short equity manager. He also spent time in equity and fixed income trading and has worked at The Carlyle Group and Morgan Stanley. He graduated from Princeton.
Jeremie Ho Hio Hen will join as an analyst on the portfolio management team. He will report to Art Holly, head of portfolio management for North America. He will be responsible for research and constructing analytical models. He was previously a rates and foreign exchange trader at JPMorgan.
Michael Callahan will join the North American sales team and focus on U.S. institutional and family office relationships. He will report to Raffaele Costa, head of North America and and Europe sales. Callahan was previously a vice president at the Blackstone Group.
Over the past several months, Man Group has been beefing up its U.S. presence. In January, it hired Miriam Tai as head of United States consultant relations, a newly created position. The former director of global consultant relations at BlackRock, is a liaison to investors who want the firms they invest in to be vetted beforehand. She also represents Man to U.S. institutional investors.
Man also brought on four new hires to the North American sales and marketing team in September, with the intent of ramping up its U.S. institutional private client businesses. The new roles have focused on developing Man's relationships with major private banks in Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles and New York.
