BennBridge boutique Pembroke has announced an appointment of Gregory Mariasch who will join as a partner and portfolio manager.
He has over 25 years of experience and worked at Goldman Sachs since the early 1990s with roles including being head of Latin America equity Trading, global co-head of EMEA Sales and trading and head of international equity trading.
He returned to Goldman Sachs in 2013, after leaving for Rohatyn Group in 2003, to assume responsibility for emerging market equities within investment strategy group. He also worked recently as chief investment officer at RAM Capital Partners.
Ahead of the Q1 2018 launch of Pembroke, the company also announced that Luis Fernandez de Mesa, who was previously vice president at Evercore, would join Pembroke as an equity analyst, bringing specialist Latin American expertise.
Pembroke’s chief investment officer, Sanjiv Bhatia said: “Building out a strong investment team is an important step and I am delighted to be launching with such a high calibre team.”
“Greg is a great investor in his own right and I am incredibly excited we’ve found an opportunity to bring our skills and expertise together.
“Our model portfolio has achieved results of over 10 per cent in just four months and we aim to continue capturing the alpha opportunity in global emerging market equities and hope to continue delivering strong uncorrelated returns to clients.
Bhatia set up Pembroke earlier this year, in partnership with multi-boutique firm BennBridge, with the team relocating to London.
The planned launch of Pembroke in Q1 2018 would follow the recent launch of Tellworth, a BennBridge boutique led by Paul Marriage and John Warren.
