Odey Asset Management Adds Jos Trusted As Head Of Institutional Business
Odey Asset Management is has appointed Jos Trusted as Head of Institutional Business. Trusted joins Odey from CQS where he led the launch of CQS’ long only equity investment business. Trusted will focus on growing Odey’s institutional business through the development of its product range, the recruitment of new investment managers and the diversification of its international client base.
Tim Pearey, Partner and Chief Executive Officer at Odey Asset Management, said: “We are excited to welcome Jos to the business. He has a strong track record of strategic business development and long experience of the investment management industry. He will bring great energy to our institutional business and allow us to maximise the opportunities emerging for active managers in this fast changing marketplace.”
Trusted said: “I am delighted to be joining such a respected investment business – particularly at this time of great industry opportunity. The business is well positioned to grow its institutional offering, combining its significant investment pedigree with deep industry connectivity. Actively managed equity funds, with low market correlation, are increasingly important sources of outperformance for asset allocators and I look forward to broadening the Odey offering and developing its international reach.”
Prior to CQS, Trusted was a Partner at Pensato Capital, the UK based European equities business. The hire follows the launch of two new actively managed funds in 2019; the Odey Concentrated Natural Resources fund, an Irish QIAIF managed by Henry Steel, and the Odey Special Situations fund, an Irish UCITS managed by Adrian Courtenay.
