Dolfin has added to its asset management team with the appointment of Vikram Bhandari as an Equities Portfolio Manager.
Based in London, Bhandari will report to Chief Investment Officer Vassilis Papaioannou (pictured). He will focus on fundamental analysis of single stocks, as well as supporting the development of Dolfin’s in-house valuation models and the idea generation process at a regional and sector level.
Bhandari joins Dolfin from Ennismore Fund Management, where he was an investment consultant for the global equities team. Prior to this, he spent over five years as a partner at Kenz Capital, an L/S equity hedge fund with a top-tier track record.
Papaioannou, says: “Unlike many asset managers, we don’t rely on expensive third-party funds, preferring to replicate those strategies with single line selections. Vikram will enhance both the wealth of expertise and the reach of our team, as we look to build a diversified portfolio of assets for our clients.”
Bhandari’s appointment follows the announcement made in May that Economist Olga Tschekassin had joined Dolfin, taking headcount growth to nearly 50% since 2016.
