David has more than 20 years trading and managing convertible bond portfolios and businesses. After a graduate appointment at Salomon Bros International, in 1987 he became a convertible bond portfolio manager and trader at BNP-Baii Asset Management. At the time Baii was widely regarded at the leading convertible investment house in London. In 1996, he moved to become a senior member of the Schroder convertible bond origination, sales & trading team. Post the takeover in 2000 of Schroder Investment Bank by Citigroup, he was asked to co-form the Citi/Schroder CB hedge team, which as as part of the wider Citi CB team became the No.1 ranked CB origination and trading team in London. In 2002 he returned to the buy-side and until 2004 managed the Zelengora Capital European Convertible Bond arbitrage portfolio. In 2004 he established and managed the ORN Capital Convertible Bond Fund. In 2006 he joined Vicis Capital and established and headed their London office and business. In late 2006 he started the International Convertible Portfolio, managing it within Vicis until he left earlier this year. This Fund is his first venture with Polar.
