'Ambitious' Kestrel hires McCausland for COO role

Kestrel Investment Partners has bolstered its team with the appointment of Dan McCausland as chief operating officer (COO).

McCausland formerly spent 10 years at boutique asset manager Aspect Capital, where he was head of client services and marketing.

During his time there, he was responsible for new funds, including the launch of a Ucits product, managed account, structured products and the establishment of the firm’s Hong Kong and Swiss subsidiaries.

Before this, McCausland was chief operating officer at Schoolenet, a dotcom education firm.

Ari Zaphiriou-Zarifi, chairman at Kestrel, says: 'Kestrel is a strong, growing company with great ambitions and Dan’s appointment not only strengthens the management team, but also enables us to further enhance our capabilities.

‘The launch of the Kestrel Global Portfolio fund was the first of a number of launches that we are planning and Dan’s appointment comes at exactly the right time for us.’

Kestrel launched the Global Portfolio in April this year, a  multi-asset fund for manager John Ricciardi.
