In this week’s hedge fund hiring report, we look at recent additions made by RWC Partners, John W. Henry & Co, Harvard University’s Endowment, and Moore Capital Management. RWC Partners has added Lakshman Harendran to its Convertible Bond team, which manages approximately $1 billion in convertible bond assets. Harendran joins from Morgan Stanley Investment Management’ fixed income team where he focused on convertible, investment grade and high yield corporate bonds. RWC Partners’ convertible bonds team is led by portfolio manager Davide Basile, who headed the convertible bond team at Morgan Stanley before joining RWC in late 2009.

After laying off almost a third of its employees in 2009, John W. Henry & Company seems to finally have a brighter outlook, as evidenced by the hiring of Larry Simms, the firm’s new managing director of business development. Mr. Simms has over 20 years of investment management sales experience, with stints at Citigroup, Bankers Trust, UBS and Wells Fargo. Mr. Simms will oversee sales and marketing at the futures trading hedge fund, working closely with the firm’s founder and Boston Red Sox owner John William Henry.

Harvard University’s Endowment has hired Neil Mason as its new Chief Risk Officer. Mr. Mason joins Harvard from London-based FRM Capital Advisors, a hedge fund of fund and hedge fund seeding subsidiary of Financial Risk Management.
