Combinatorics Capital: Robert W. Jenkins CEO and managing partner
Since 1998, Mr. Jenkins has headed F&C Asset Management plc, one of the oldest global money managers. During his tenure, first as CEO and then as Chairman, F&C was transformed from a venerable, privately held, UK-centric boutique into a pan-European, London Stock Exchange-listed competitor with assets under management exceeding $150 billion. Mr. Jenkins retired from F&C in May.
Prior to joining F&C, Mr. Jenkins ran trading rooms for Citibank in Dubai, Bahrain, Zurich and Tokyo. He then moved to the buy side with Credit Suisse Asset Management first as CIO and Head of CSAM's money management arm in Japan, and later as COO of that group's investment activities in the UK, Central and Eastern Europe. ■
