CityWire.co.uk- RWC Partners has recruited Carmel Peters and Kirsty McLaren for the launch of an Asian-focused fund.
Investment boutique RWC, which changed its name from MPC Investors earlier this month, has hired Peters and McLaren from Sofaer Capital.
The duo has been brought in to co-manage the RWC Asia Ascent Fund, which will be launched later in the year.
The new fund will invest across the Asia region and be benchmarked against the Asian (ex-Japan) indices. It will adopt Ucits III status to allow the flexibility to short indices and stocks.
