AIMA Appoints Ivy Asset Management Co-President as New US Council Member

19 May 2008

London, 19 May 2008: The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) - the global hedge fund and alternative investment industry body - has appointed Sean Simon of Ivy Asset Management as the new AIMA Council representative of its US members and as a member of the AIMA Board of Directors.

Since January 2006 Mr Simon has been Co-President of Ivy Asset Management, one of America’s leading alternative investment funds of funds managers with in excess of $15bn assets under management. He is responsible for the firm’s strategic planning and the management of its overall business. Mr Simon also serves on the firm’s Investment Committee as an advisory member.

As a member of the Managed Funds Association’s (MFA) Board of Directors, Mr Simon’s presence on both governing bodies will complement greatly the newly-announced collaboration between the two associations.

Florence Lombard, CEO of AIMA, commented:

We are delighted to welcome Mr Simon to this role representing the interests of our US members. As well as benefiting from Mr Simon’s strategic input at board level, his unique position within both associations will enhance the development of a closer working relationship with the MFA. Mr Simon is an ideal figure to take on this position because of his central position in the industry and we are excited about the level of expertise and experience that he will bring to our activities.”
