Today, GSR is excited to announce that it has appointed former Winton Group co-COO Andrew Moss as Managing Director of GSR Capital. Andrew will be tasked with leading this new business unit, which will ultimately develop investment vehicles for institutional investors.
Andrew’s background in derivatives trading, investment management and trading and operations is extensive, featuring stints at several top firms. He spent 14 years at Winton, helping to build the boutique hedge fund into one of the most respected and largest investment firms in Europe. Prior to serving as co-COO from 2017 through 2019, Andrew was the CEO of Winton Investment Management and the Global Head of Investment Solutions, leading an overhaul of the firm’s fund structure and sales teams as it transitioned into an institutional-focused manager.
We are delighted to add Andrew to our rapidly expanding team, which now boasts several former directors, heads of trading and other executives from major banks and hedge funds.
“The growth in our industry over the last 12 months has been explosive and we’re focused on delivering the capital, market structure and investment vehicles to drive the next wave of institutional activity. Having helped build one of the top-performing hedge funds in the world, Andrew will play a central role in developing a new generation of trading and investment products. The flow of intellectual capital from major institutions is a testament to the growth and promise of our industry.” Cristian Gil, GSR co-founder.
Andrew added “Hedge funds, insurers and institutions are eyeing digital assets in a way they haven’t before, but need familiarity before they take the first step into the digital asset space. I’m excited to be joining GSR at such a pivotal time in the industry’s development and to play a role in shaping what investment management looks like for the next generation of entrants. I believe GSR’s rigorous and systematic approach can give the firm an edge in this market segment.”
