LONDON IS WELCOMING TWO NEW HEDGE FUNDS – Two ex-employees of Tudor Investment Corporation/Capital Europe, are starting their own funds based in London. Dirk Jeschke, a former portfolio manager at Tudor and PIMCO, is planning a macro fund that emphasises on medium to long-term systematic macro strategies. The launch will come in either the first or second quarter of 2018. Theodoros Tsagaris, who is a quant specialist with a PhD in Statistics & Machine Learning from Imperial College London, is preparing to launch his fund called Bayforest Technologies. The firm will invest across a number of asset classes and will employ a “low-capacity” risk premia strategy. He will be launching the firm with help from ex-Man FRM head, as the businesses COO. #SpartanInternational
