EEA to step up HF growth with hire of ex-TT man Hobson


The appointment by investment group EEA of former TT International partner John Hobson to the newly created post of chief executive officer marks the start of a drive by the London-based firm to expand its hedge fund business.

Hobson, who started with EEA at the beginning of March, was formerly the manager of the well-performing TT Mid-Cap Europe Fund - which he ran with David Grimbley until the start of 2008. He then took a year-long sabbatical and formally retired from the TT partnership at the end of January this year.

The fund has performed very well since inception
