Carmignac Gestion Group appoints equities team in London
Carmignac Gestion Group has appointed a new four-man European equities team, headed by Muhammed Yesilhark.
The team is based in Carmignac Gestion Luxembourg’s London branch and will assume management of €1.6bn of European funds: Carmignac Grande Europe, Carmignac Euro-Patrimoine and Carmignac Euro-Entrepreneurs.
Yesilhark (pictured) and his team previously managed a large European equity portfolio for four years at SAC Global Investors’ London office, with a strong track record.
Yesilhark started as an analyst at Lazard in Frankfurt. He then helped to build York Capital’s hedge fund business for five years before joining SAC in 2009. He studied Finance and Management at the European School of Business in Reutlingen.
Yesilhark will run the Carmignac Grande Europe fund and the long-short Carmignac Euro-Patrimoine fund and will co-manage the small and mid-caps Carmignac Euro-Entrepreneurs fund with Malte Heininger who has been working with Muhammed for more than three years and is a former investment banker at Morgan Stanley. Malte graduated from ESCP-EAP in Paris.
The team also includes two analysts:
Huseyin Yasar joined Muhammed’s team in 2011 from Goldman Sachs’ M&A division, and graduated from the European School of Business in Reutlingen and from Dublin City University.
Saiyid Hamid worked for three years at Private Equity firm TA Associates, and graduated from Harvard Business School before joining Muhammed’s team at SAC in 2013.
