Izard Quin, the Geneva based discretionary hedge fund manager, has named Elliott Sims as the Chief Strategist and Manager for their recently launched Alternative Asset Investment Fund IQAM.

Established in February 2008, the Izard Quin discretionary fund management division currently manages over $350 million USD for a wide range of international investors. The division was set-up by Bernard Quin and since inception IQAM’s core focus has been to provide consistent risk-adjusted returns through fundamental/macro-based discretionary asset management services to investment funds, and financial institutions globally.

Elliott Sims brings a strong record of performance having successfully managed the IROC Group for seven years. He expects the fourth quarter of 2012 to continue to generate positive results for the IQAM division given the fact that some of Europe’s biggest computer driven hedge funds have failed to profit from the rebound in the first half of 2012, frustrating investors who poured billions into assets following the credit crisis.

According to IQAM’s Chief Operating Officer Bernard Quin, "Our investors in the IQAM Managed Account Program have enjoyed a consistent record of outperformance primarily driven by a diversified and conservative approach with a strong focus on risk management."

“Our investment philosophy has helped the strategy to produce strong performance through robust times and also in periods of market crisis. IQAM’s investment programs deliver a base case alpha engine which has produced consistent returns for our investors and with low volatility.” said Quin.

“There are substantial opportunities in both the sector and increased investor interest in allocations to fund managers as a unique diversifier. We are delighted to have Elliott at the head of the IQAM fund which will assist us in further developing our business” stated Quin.

Izard Quin is a Geneva based leading provider of private fund management, asset management, and tax optimization solutions. The company serves individuals, small businesses and corporations internationally.
