He is well known in the investing community and will be a strong addition to our business in all areas.”

Andy Powell commented: “I am delighted to join Rutland and excited about the prospects for continuing to develop and grow such a well-established business. Rutland has a great team of people and is ideally placed to build on its successes in special situations investing.”
