GAM announces the appointment of Investment Director, Paul Udall
Paul joins GAM’s London office today to manage an equity mandate which will invest in environmental and sustainable investment themes.

Prior to that he was a hedge fund manager for Tudor Investments in Greenwich, Connecticut, where he managed systematic market neutral strategies, and Morley Fund Management.
