Trium Capital hires for new top-down equity long/short strategy


Trium Capital, a London-based alternative asset manager, has hired Adrien Szappanyos to manage a new top-down equity long/short strategy.  

Szappanyos’ appointment is one of several recent high-profile hires, as Trium prepares to unveil a broader proposition to investors later this year.
Szappanyos brings a wealth of experience to the new role, having spent the past six years managing fundamental and technical strategies at a family office. Prior to this, Szappanyos was a partner at Third Phase Capital Management and managing partner of ACS Capital – while he also successfully managed the Dynacap European Opportunity Fund, which returned more than 60 per cent net during the heavily-volatile period between 2006-2008. Szappanyos has also held roles with Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers International.
Trium’s new long/short equity sector strategy focuses on the US and Europe, utilising ETFs and sector swaps to minimise idiosyncratic stock risk. Market timing with technical analysis and active management of net exposure are key alpha generators within this strategy, which results in low correlation to equity markets.
Shenan Dhanani (pictured), co-head of Trium Capital, says: “At Trium we have cultivated a truly collaborative environment for portfolio managers. We carefully select portfolio managers able to service our clients at all stages of the cycle, with a proven track record of unearthing sources of uncorrelated return. The appointment of Adrien allows us to further develop our offering and continue expanding our suite of specialist strategies.”
Szappanyos concludes: “The decade-long bull run is coming to an end. This will create disruption for long-only strategies that have enjoyed a directional market and usher in a new era of elevated volatility. It also brings more trading opportunities for contrarian investors using long/short strategies to generate outperformance in more turbulent market conditions. Trium has proven itself as a leading specialist alternative asset manager and I look forward to adding value to its dynamic and collaborative offering.”
