Superfund’s Baha Takes Star Turn In ‘Wall Street’ Sequel

Sep 23 2010 | 10:00am ET

Retail hedge fund mogul Christian Baha counts Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone among the clients of his Superfund. It’s a relationship that’s paying off in one unusual way for the managed-futures fund manager with a role in Stone’s latest movie, the sequel to the 1987 classic “Wall Street.”

In “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” Baha enjoys a small speaking role. Perhaps fearing for his money manager’s acting chops, or lack thereof, Stone cast Baha, a former Vienna policeman,  in a role he’d likely feel comfortable: As a hedge fund manager.

Stone is invested in Superfund’s Gold fund, which is up 18.5% this year, Reuters reports.

The “Wall Street” sequel is due in theatres tomorrow. It features a hedge fund manager, played by real actor Josh Brolin, as its chief villain, with Michael Douglas reprising his role as the legendary Gordon Gekko.
