Quam names former consultant new CEO


Hong Kong-based Quam Asset Management has named Richard Harris as CEO. The firm, which has about $69 million in AUM, runs the Quam Greater China SP long/short equity-focused hedge fund.

It is planning a Middle East-focused fund, but has not given a timeframe for its launch. The firm is a subsidiary of Hong Kong Stock Exchange-listed securities firm Quam Ltd.

Harris had previously run his own consulting firm, Port Shelter, which advised family offices and other investors.  His 25 years in the investment industry includes experience in managing and marketing mutual, private and pension funds in multi-asset classes.
