Winton hires Brevan Howard and Credit Suisse veteran

Winton hires Brevan Howard and Credit Suisse veteran

Hedge fund star Stephen Stonberg has joined Winton Capital Management, Wealth Manager can reveal.

Stonberg will be a senior adviser at Winton, the £15 billion hedge fund giant opened by AHL co-founder David Harding in 1997.

Stonberg was formerly a partner at Brevan Howard and chief executive of its US office. He left that firm after five years in 2011 to join Credit Suisse, where he became head of product management for alternatives.

Stonberg exited Credit Suisse in March 2013 and has since worked as a consultant for Schroders in New York.

Harding recently set out ambitious plans to grow Winton from its position as Europe’s fourth largest hedge fund group, including the recruitment of up to another 100 members of staff and the launch of additional long-only equity funds.

The Winton Global Equity fund has returned 39.2% over the past three years, compared with an average of 20% from its Global Equities peer group.

The DB Platinum IV Systematic Alpha fund, which is based on a Winton strategy, has returned 6.6% over the past three years compared with an average loss of 1.1% from its Alternative Ucits Managed Futures sector.
