Cura Capital Management is prepping its Cura Compass Multi-strategy Fund for launch this summer, according to sources familiar with the fund. The Compass fund will deploy capital among eight strategies and target 15% annual returns.

A group of fellow Clinton Group alumni, including Mike Vacca (converts and event driven/credit), Richard Cohen (quantitative research and statistical arbitrage), Bob Smalley (credit research), Bob Wenzel (credit portfolio manager) and Steve Cameron (quantitative), will join Cura’s founder, Tom Schnepp, in this new endeavor.

Schnepp founded Cura in November 2004. The firm currently manages $425 million in its fixed income arbitrage fund.
