CHAPTER 9
An Ambassador of the Highest Standard
Christopher Fawcett, Co-Founder, Senior Partner, Fauchier Partners
 
 
 
Christopher Fawcett brings more than a European perspective and a “classic formation and background” in business to achieve recognition as a leading hedge fund investor.
Co-founder in 1994 of Fauchier Partners, a fund of hedge funds favored by prestigious British institutions, Fawcett offers expert advice stemming from years of investment experience. He also represents the viewpoint of a true industry leader, earning that reputation from his years of commitment and service in two influential industry organizations.
Fawcett was chairman of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) from 2002 to 2008 and continues to sit on the AIMA Council as a director of the association. He is also a trustee of the Hedge Fund Standards Board Limited (HFSB).
Prior to Fauchier Partners, Fawcett worked for Euris SA, a French investment holding company, and for the Duménil Group. He gained securities industry experience with Morgan Grenfell, Industrial Technology Securities, a venture capital company he also co-founded.
Fawcett has an MA in law from Oxford University, an MBA with distinction from INSEAD, and is a qualified Chartered Accountant. He serves as a director of the CFA Society of the United Kingdom and of Mirabaud Gestion SA.
