Towry hires hedge fund expert

Wealth firm Towry has recruited a hedge fund specialist for its investment team.

Mehdi Douali has joined Towry’s London office from BlueMountain Capital, where he worked with investors on the firm’s range of hedge funds. BlueMountain was one of the hedge funds to make a fortune on the other side of JP Morgan’s London Whale trade.

Before BlueMountain, Douali worked as a senior investment analyst at Atlas Capital and as an exotic equities derivatives trader at Barclays Capital.

Andrew Wilson (pictured), head of investment at Towry, described Douali as ‘an excellent investment specialist who I have been hoping to bring into my team for some time’.
