Key Facts *
With dedicated, experienced professionals working in our offices and affiliates in New York, London, Jersey (Channel Islands), Geneva (Nyon), Madrid and São Paulo, Autonomy manages over $4 billion in capital for some of the world’s most sophisticated institutional investors. Autonomy is entirely owned by our principals, who also comprise the firm’s largest investor group, helping to ensure our goals and objectives are directly aligned with those of Autonomy’s investors.
For over 20 years Robert Gibbins has applied his fascination with the development and transition of economies and societies to the management of global macro and emerging market portfolios and investments – a distinctive focus that has personified Autonomy since he founded the firm as CIO in 2003. After earning a BS in Economics from Wharton, he began his career at JP Morgan in 1992, traded northern European FX and interest rates at Lehman Brothers for two years, and headed their Emerging Markets and Global Macro Proprietary Trading for seven more years, before deciding to start a company for professionals who share his blend of passion and pragmatism.
Since January 2009, Derek has led Autonomy’s business and strategic development helping to ensure the firm maintains the critical infrastructure necessary to support its investment strategies. As a managing partner, he is responsible for oversight of risk management and all non-investment activities, including operations, technology, finance, marketing, legal and compliance. Before joining Autonomy in August 2008, Derek served as a Managing Director at Millennium Partners and Provident Advisors LLC, both multi-strategy hedge funds. He began his career at O’Connor & Associates, where he held various roles leading to Director of Emerging Markets and Interest Rate Derivatives at UBS/Swiss Bank. Derek graduated from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania with a BS in Economics.
