Eden Financial has appointed former Henderson head of multi-manager Mark Harris to jointly manage the company’s existing multi-asset fund, Money Marketing can reveal.
He will co-manage the £66.6m CF Eden global multi-strategy fund alongside Chris Jaques and is joining on September 12.
Jaques currently runs the fund for the private client side of the Eden business.
Eden Financial head of asset management Ed Rosengarten says: “Inflows into the balanced and multi-asset sectors are vast. Jacques has been running the
fund to the requirements of the private client business and Harris now has the opportunity to take that to the external market. The fund is appropriate
and consistent with both the private client and external market.”
He adds: “Harris brings his experience in the multi-asset area and presence in the external market. We can now combine considerable knowledge and in-depth experience in equities, multi-asset, fund of funds, fixed interest and alternatives, providing us with the right breadth of skills that we set out to achieve.”
Harris says: “I’m really looking forward to working together with the existing multi-strategy team to extend the range of funds available and help
build Eden’s presence in the market.”
Harris worked at New Star from 2003 to 2009 and grew assets under his overall management from £400m to £1.2bn. When New Star was acquired by
Henderson Group, he personally managed nine funds worth a total of £800m.
Harris and Craig Heron were both made redundant from Henderson in February this year.
