We are pleased to announce that we are expanding our operations with the appointment of Alistair Evans as CEO in our London-based UK subsidiary, Argentarius ETI UK ltd.

Alistair has considerable experience in the alternatives sector and will be responsible for growing the ETI brand in the UK market and for exploring new securitisation opportunities across a number of different sectors, including the alternative finance industry, securitisation of marketplace lending originated loans and securitisation solutions for the insurance industry.

He was head of international sales at Qbasis Invest – an alternative investment management firm with a specific focus on systematic trading – and partner and co-founder of GLS – a hedge fund marketing business.

Prior to that he worked at UBS and Merrill Lynch, where he focused on the intermediary and wealth manager market.

He began his career in 2002 at the US investment bank Laidlaw and then moved to the ECU Group, a former subsidiary of ED&F Man.

Argentarius CEO Andreas Wölfl said:

“We are pleased to have someone with Alistair’s knowledge of the hedge fund industry in our team as we expand the ETI offering in the UK, not just as a route to creating listed hedge fund structures but also for an alternative financing vehicle using the public markets across a broad range of industries.”
