The job comes in addition to Mr. Mullins’ responsibilities as managing director and chief economist at Azimuth Trust, a fund of funds business with more than US$400 million in assets, which has a working relationship with Vega. He also will continue to serve as a member of Azimuth Trust’s investment committee.

Mr. Mullins is well known in the industry as a founding principal of Long-Term Capital Management. At LTCM he was involved in relative value and directional strategies in equity and fixed income in U.S., European and Japanese markets. He also co-founded the firm’s Asian investment business.
