Four Capital hires ex-Insight man Pinggera to build multi-strategy arm

Four Capital hires ex-Insight man Pinggera to build multi-strategy arm

Former Insight head of multi-asset Michael Pinggera (pictured) is part of a three-strong team hired by investment boutique Four Capital.

Pinggera is joined by Paul Zoltowski - who he worked alongside at Credit Suisse in a spell prior to Insight - and JO Hambro Investments’ Johan Badenhorst. The trio will be tasked with building a multi-strategy proposition for Four. 

Pinggera, who left Insight in February, will head the team with Zoltowski serving as a client relationship manager and Badenhorst focusing on trade and risk management.

The team will launch its first fund on 2 January. Four said the fund would be a diversified growth strategy, with embedded downside protections delivered in a transparent, liquid low cost fund.

The fund will allocate to eight regional and country equity indices to gain directional exposure and to four non-directional low beta investment themes to provide exposure to active alpha, emerging markets, equity alternatives and real assets.

In a statement accompanying the news, Four Capital founding partner Derek Dunne said: ‘We have been very interested in this fast growing space and have spent a good deal of time identifying the right team for us.

‘We are delighted to have attracted such a high profile and experienced team. There is strong demand from clients for high quality multi-strategy portfolios and we believe that the approach employed by Mike has significant differentiators that will be attractive to a wide range of investors.’
