GLG British retail co-head moves to Asia

Andrew Thatcher, the co-head of British retail at GLG Partners, is moving to GLG’s operations in Asia following its merger with Man Group.

Thatcher helped build GLG’s British retail business along with Richard Phillips, his fellow co-head, who Man Group has named as its new head of British retail.

Thatcher will now report to Tim Rainsford, the Asia Pacific managing director for Man Investments, in his new role as a senior product specialist for the region.
