Oct 8 2010 | 11:14am ET

Gregg Weinstein, the former Goldman Sachs risk-management chief, has launched his first hedge fund with $88.3 million in the offshore version and $14.3 million in the onshore fund.

RocWood Capital Partners attracted money from at least eight investors for its debut, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The event-driven fund plans to invest across the corporate capital structure.

Weinstein spent 17 years at Goldman before leaving the firm in December. In addition to risk management, he also oversaw U.S. investment-grade credit trading and convertible bonds.
