FOUR Capital Partners has appointed Adour Sarkissian to establish a North American equity capability.
Sarkissian was at ING (New York), where he managed the ING (L) Invest US High Dividend Fund from 2007 until 2014. During this period he increased fund assets from USD100 million to USD1.7 billion.
Prior to that, he worked as a US equity manager with Capital at Work between 2005 and 2007, and with S&P Investment Services from 2001 to 2005. He has more than 15 years of investment experience, focused on North American equities.
He will start in his new position in October in FOUR’s London offices.
Derrick Dunne, a founding partner of FOUR, says: “We are very excited to have Adour joining us. He has a great track record in this space, and has had a strong following at his previous firm. We are confident that with the solid operational infrastructure and seeding from FOUR, Adour will be in the best position possible to continue producing peer group leading performance.”
Sarkissian says: “I was fortunate to have a number of opportunities being made available to me on both sides of the Atlantic. FOUR stood out as the best possible option for me. I will have a great framework in which to execute my well established investment process, build a US equity franchise, and continue to provide a differentiated equity product and strong relative performance for my clients.”
