Pablo Balan joins Stenham Asset Management
Stenham Asset Management has announced that Pablo Balan is its new head of Risk Management and Quantitative Research.
Responsibilities include overseeing all aspects of risk across the full range of Stenham’s funds and portfolios.
Balan is also responsible for generating quantitative research on underlying funds and portfolio analytics to assist the fund selection, monitoring and portfolio construction processes.
Prior to joining Stenham, Balan spent eight years at Coutts & Co, as Global head of Portfolio Risk and Quantitative Analysis. Prior to that he worked at Citigroup Private Bank in London as vice president of the Foreign Exchange and Interest Rate Derivatives desk.
Jeremy Alun-Jones, Group managing director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Pablo to Stenham who brings with him a wealth of institutional level risk management experience. At Stenham we have a very conservative approach to managing clients’ investments with risk management being at the heart of our investment philosophy. Our investment process has evolved over the last 20 years to be as much about managing risk as delivering returns. We have a qualitatively driven approach with significant input to our investment decisions from operational and quantitative research which ensures there is a robust challenge to our qualitative view.”
