GLG appoints Philips and Thatcher to manage GLG’s UK arm

GLG has appointed Andrew Thatcher and Richard Phillips to manage the firm’s UK business.

The appointments follow the acquisition of SGAM, where Phillips had worked since 1998 as head of the UK retail business.

Thatcher has worked at GLG since 2006 and will retain responsibility for the on-going distribution of GLG’s hedge fund products into the UK.

GLG co-CEO Emmanuel Roman says: “The acquisition of SGAM UK has given the business a great platform from which to further develop and grow. As a combined entity GLG has the tools and the talent to become a leading asset manager in the UK and Andrew and Richard will be instrumental in making this happen.”
