Doyle (pictured) will be mainly responsible for developing relationship with the counterparties and administrators as well as for overseeing all internal risk management, monitoring and compliance processes.

Alessandra Manuli, CEO of Hedge Invest SGR said:“The arrival of a top professional like Fergal proves Hedge Invest’s commitment in further increasing the quality of its services, even abroad, by strengthening a business that aims at attracting talents of the alternative management in a strategic center such as London.”
London-based Principia Investment Management Limited (PIML) allows selected management teams to leverage off Hedge Invest’s high quality tech, risk management and back office services.
