CedarKnight Partners appoints head of operations


CedarKnight Partners has appointed Ranjit Atwal to head its investment management operations across the firm's international business.

Located in the firm's new London office on Berkeley Street, Atwal will be overseeing all operational and client reporting matters across a number of jurisdictions where CedarKnight operates and is launching in the very short-term.
In his new role, he will work closely with the CedarKnight management team to support the firm's expansion plans following its recent success with new investment mandates.
Co-founding partner Gilly Uppal says: "Ranjit brings with him a strong institutional background in wealth management and leading operations within the boutique alternative investment space. We are experiencing a demand for our market neutral event and corporate action strategies and key to the firm's philosophy is the ability to offer such strategies supported by robust infrastructure. Ranjit comes from a solution driven environment that will help drive the business forward in meeting such demands."
Atwal says: "It is an exciting time to join a firm that prides itself on focusing on managing innovative strategies for a select sophisticated investor base. Investors and counterparties are increasingly looking to the operational integrity of a firm and their investment strategies and this becomes vital for a firm like CedarKnight who has placed a strong emphasis on developing a portfolio of closely held client relationships. The trend towards more tailored and bespoke strategies to investors over a range of investments shows that emerging asset managers with robust operations can offer a true tailored approach and I look forward to leading this at CedarKnight."
Atwal worked with Jupiter and Schroders early in his career before spending several years with Global Investment Solutions at Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management. Since leaving Deutsche in 2012 he has headed operations at another alternative investment manager.
