Cantab Capital Partners, a systematic global macro manager based in Cambridge, UK, has announced that Matthew Killeya (senior scientist) and Genia Diamond (head of Business Development), have been named partners in the firm.

The appointments recognise Killeya's and Diamond's contribution to Cantab's business success and growth, a statement said. Diamond has led the Investor Relations team that has overseen Cantab's assets increase fivefold to $5.3bn since 2011. Killeya's primary focus is investment strategy, having contributed strategies in all three of the clusters within the portfolio (momentum, value and short term)

Genia has a PhD in linguistics from the Moscow State University, an MBA from Erasmus University in the Netherlands and achieved an MA (honours) in Linguistics & Culture Studies from the Moscow State University.

He was previously a senior managing researcher at Winton Capital Management for five years. Matt has a first class Master of Mathematics degree and a PhD in Bayesian statistics from Durham University.
