Barclays veteran to head up AIMA
AIMA has appointed Jack Inglis, a veteran at Barclays Prime Services, to succeed Andrew Baker as CEO of the hedge fund lobbying organisation.
Inglis, a member of the global executive committee at Barclays Prime Services, will begin his role at the start of 2014. Prior to joining Barclays, Inglis was CEO at Ferox Capital between 2007 and 2010, and was previously a co-head of European prime brokerage at Morgan Stanley between 2003 and 2007.
Andrew Baker has been CEO at AIMA since 2009, having been appointed deputy CEO in 2007. A former COO at Schroders’ alternatives business in London, Baker’s tenure at AIMA proved challenging, having had to deal with the onslaught of hedge fund regulations on both sides of the Atlantic in the aftermath of the crisis.
AIMA has been widely credited for its lobbying efforts which played a significant role in softening some of the more onerous provisions contained in the EU’s Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).
