Resource #1: John Armitage and William Bollinger co-founded London-based Egerton Capital Limited in May 1994. Since then, the European equity hedge fund management firm has known an unusual success and, after attracting over $400 million in capital within eighteen months, the principals have decided not to take on new assets after January 2nd, 1996. John Armitage, Chief Investment Officer, joined Morgan Grenfell in 1981, became Head of European Research in 1986 and ran the firm's highly successful European Growth Trust from 1988 to 1994.

William Bollinger, Chief Operating Officer, started his career in 1980 as an oil services analyst with Goldman Sachs & Co. in New York, worked at Tiger Management from 1984 to 1987 before running his own hedge fund in New York between 1987 and 1992. Egerton Capital runs a US$ and a DM denominated offshore fund as well as a U.S. limited partnership and institutional accounts. For the ten months ending October 31st, 1995, the funds are up approximately 31% net of fees in US$ as well as in DM. The returns are similar because currency exposure is hedged back to each fund's base currency. John Armitage and William Bollinger talked to Antoine Bernheim at the beginning of November, 1995.
