HARRISON, N.Y. (HedgeWorld.com)–PV Capital, a US$71 million global macro hedge fund, hired two people to research commodities markets.

Drew Lambert joined the firm as a research analyst, while Allyson Yu joined as a junior analyst, according to a news release from the firm.

Pankaj Vaish, PV Capital’s president, said his firm hired Mr. Lambert and Ms. Yu to help with research as the firm grows. PV Capital might add another senior-level hire when assets under management reach US$100 million, Mr. Vaish said.

“Hiring Drew and Allyson will allow us to more closely watch individual commodities contracts, and to be more proactive in putting on trades,” Mr. Vaish said in a statement. “We are able to get in on the move earlier.”
