A former star manager at Cheyne Capital Management and a co-founder of Centaurus Capital has founded her own hedge fund with another former Cheyne executive.
Massi Khadjenouri has teamed up with Jan Lernout to set up Kite Lake Capital Management. The new firm is readying a special situations hedge fund, Financial News reports.
