RWC adds global equity to its range


London-based RWC Partners has recruited Priya Kodeeswaran to launch a global equity-focused long/short UCITS fund in the latest move to add to its roster of strategies and managers.

Kodeeswaran joins from Cheyne, where he successfully managed a long/short equity approach focusing on companies with rapidly developing business models, particularly in the TMT sectors.

The new global equity product will launch early in the new year - and follows the successful recent launch by RWC of US equity long/short funds run by former SAC manager Mike Corcell.
