Tribeca has appointed longstanding employee, Chris Daily, to the newly created role of chief investment officer. Chris Daily joined Tribeca in 2011 and is the portfolio manager of the Tribeca Global Total Return Fund. 

In this new role Mr Daily will work alongside David Aylward (managing director and portfolio manager), Sean Fenton (director and portfolio manager) and Kylie Osgood (director and chief operating officer) in continuing to develop solutions that fit clients’ needs with the returns that they expect.

Mr Aylward said this appointment coincides with growth in the business – particularly the growing output of the quantitative team – and recognises the significant contribution Mr Daily makes to Tribeca across the breadth of its investment processes. 

“Before joining Tribeca, Mr Daily was with Barclays Global Investors (BGI) in a variety of leadership roles including global head of investment process – Global Market Strategies Group (GMSG); Hedge Fund Management Group (HFMG) and Client Solutions (CS). 

“Prior to these broader executive roles he was a senior portfolio manager within GMSG, which was BGI’s large macro and currency overlay business.  

“Chris’ past experience, combined with his time at Tribeca as the lead portfolio manager of the Global Total Return Fund, means he is well placed to take on this new role.”

While continuing to be the lead portfolio manager of the Global Total Return Fund, Mr Daily’s primary focus will also involve:

  • Continuing to work with the expanded quantitative team on their growing output
  • Monitoring the fundamental analysis teams’ output and interaction with the Conviction System (Chris led the successful implementation of this addition to Tribeca’s process over the last couple of years)
  • Maintaining and continuing to lead the development of the portfolio management and risk systems
  • The ongoing development of total return strategies.

Mr Daily has a Masters of Engineering from the University of Western Australia, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (cum laude) from Princeton University and is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Charter holder.
