Tara Skinner was named head of U.K. client relationships management at Informed Portfolio Management, said CEO Stefan Nydahl.
Ms. Skinner takes on responsibilities from Johan Larsson, who left the firm last year to take on a role in investor relations at Och-Ziff Capital Management.
Ms. Skinner leads development of the firm in the U.K. and will lead the upcoming new U.K. office. She reports to Lars Ericsson, head of client relationship management and deputy CEO.
The U.K. is a strategic market for the firm due to the presence of global investment consultants, said a separate statement by IPM, and the firm said it has recently been hired by a number of investors. IPM focuses on two strategies: systematic macro and systematic equities.
Ms. Skinner was previously a marketer at Brevan Howard. A spokesman for Brevan Howard declined to comment.
