Trafalgar Capital strengthens investment team


Trafalgar Capital Management, the London based hedge fund manager, has appointed Josh Jacobson as partner and senior portfolio manager. 


Jacobson was previously a partner and portfolio manager at Cheyne Capital, where he managed a European long/short equity portfolio for the Cheyne Value Fund. 

Prior to that, he worked for JP Morgan as a director of equity sales, where he worked on the hedge fund sales team. Jacobson began his career at Salomon Brothers in 1994, working initially in New York in the emerging market research department and later as director of equity sales in London.

At Trafalgar Capital, Jacobson will work alongside founder and chief executive Chris Aarons and senior portfolio manager Arjuna Gamage on the Trafalgar Trading Fund. The fund, a dynamic equity trading strategy, looks to capture short-term market mispricings and inefficiencies by identifying price-moving events and information flows that may not yet have been reflected into current share prices. 

Aarons says: “The expansion of our investment team in London will give the Trafalgar Trading Fund a significant edge in European markets as Josh has such a deep understanding of this region. We are very excited to have him on board and believe that we can continue to deliver the same level of superior risk-adjusted returns as we have consistently done for our investors since launch in 2002. The team has outperformed even in difficult markets, emphasising the importance we place on hiring talented investment professionals.”
