Wahi, who previously ran a similar strategy for Fidelity International, will be a part of the firm’s GLG unit. The firm declined to provide details on the assets and headcount that will be under Wahi, who started on Monday in London.
Wahi was a significant hire for $2 billion Gladstone, the George Michelakis-run manager based in London, when he was brought on in 2021. Gladstone has continued to build out its team, including its first-ever president, former Marshall Wace partner Daoud Zekrya, who will focus on both recruiting new talent and training up existing investors.
