Analyst Mike Foster sat down for a chat with Anthony Frieze, following his appointment as Managing Director of Red Ribbon Fund Management.
They discussed investing in Indian real estate, building a resilient economy and environmental responsibility. One example given was raising funds for an Indian modular building technology and manufacturing company, Modulex. Anthony’s new role involves Red Ribbon’s white label fund service, which allows fund managers to launch funds in a very cost-effective and efficient manner, using Red Ribbon’s platform but under their own branding.
Anthony spent most of his banking career, spanning more than 20 years, at JPMorgan, BNY Mellon, Deutsche Bank and Allianz/Dresdner Kleinwort, originally as a stockbroker and then as a senior product specialist and relationship manager in agency repo and collateral management. His clients included some of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, as well as a wide range of leading central banks and governmental and international investors across Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Before joining Red Ribbon, he was CEO of a startup discretionary macro futures fund, and concurrently became a specialist in placement advisory and capital introduction, with a focus on alternative investments.
