A pair of British-based hedge fund managers is among the richest young Australians, according to an annual survey.

Business Review Weekly ranked Moore Capital Management’s Greg Coffey as the second-wealthiest Australian under 40 with a fortune of A$406 million. Coffey, 39, was formerly GLG Partners’ top hedge fund manager.

Coming in right behind him is Marble Bar Asset Management founder Hilton Nathanson, who at 40 is making his final appearance on the list. Nathanson, who earlier this year led the management re-buyout of the US$1 billion hedge fund, boasts a A$395 million fortune.

The BRW list was led by coal-mining investor Nathan Tinker, who has A$610 million.
