Daily Telegraph – Ruth Keattch, the star fund manager nicknamed "Rock Hard Ruth", is to make a come-back with a move to Artemis, the activist fund manager with £14bn under management.
Mrs Keattch, who earned a fearsome reputation at Deutsche Asset Management, where she fought against private equity firms trying to snap up publicly listed companies on the cheap, has been hired by Artemis to again spot the value in companies that have been hit hard by the credit crunch.
She has been appointed to co-manage Artemis’s flagship fund, the £800m Special Situations fund with Derek Stuart.
Mr Stuart, a founder member of Artemis, said: "We want to focus on the stocks that have been hardest hit in the recent sell-off. Ruth has a formidable reputation in the area and we’re very excited that she’s joining."
