Citigate Dewe Rogerson’s global hedge fund practice reaches 20 clients
The global hedge fund practice of Citigate Dewe Rogerson, the leading international financial and corporate communications consultancy, has added 20 new clients in less than a year since it was launched. Client strategies covered include equity long/short, credit, quant, event-driven, activist, distressed, global macro, FX, emerging markets, biotech, disruptive tech and SRI.
The practice, centred on London, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and Singapore, is led by Senior Director Christen Thomson, a former Deputy CEO of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), the global representative of the alternative investment industry. During his six years with AIMA, Christen worked closely with many of the world’s biggest hedge funds and many of the world’s biggest investors in hedge funds, as well as with the leading journalists covering the industry globally.
Christen Thomson, Senior Director and head of hedge funds at Citigate Dewe Rogerson, said, “The rapid growth of our hedge fund practice shows that hedge fund firms globally are increasingly prioritising reputation management to support their capital-raising. It is a challenging environment in which to raise money and firms are responding by thinking strategically about how to build their profile for their target investor audiences.”
Simon Rigby, Managing Director, Citigate Dewe Rogerson commented, “We believe that the right way to support a complex, sophisticated global industry is with deep industry knowledge and experience and an international network of offices in the major industry centres globally.”
