Mandelblatt Unveils Pair Of Hedge Funds

Nov 11 2010 | 9:27am ET

Eric Mandelblatt, former partner of TPG-Axon Capital Management, has raised $130 for a pair of funds managed by his new hedge fund firm, New York-based Soroban Capital Partners.

According to regulatory filings, the company has raised $90 million for its U.S.-based Soroban Fund and $40.5 million for an offshore vehicle, the Soroban Cayman Fund. Both funds have a minimum investment of $5 million.

Soroban Capital Partners—named for a Japanese abacus—began operations this fall.

In addition to Mandelblatt, the funds’ executive officers include former TPG-Axon partner Guarav Kapadia, former TPG-Axon head trader Scott Friedman and former Kailix Advisors CFO Vito Tanzi.

Rumors about Mandelblatt’s newest venture have been rife since he left TPG-Axon earlier this year. Prior to joining TPG-Axon, Mandelblatt worked at Goldman Sachs Group, first as an energy analyst, then as a member of the principal strategies group. Mandelblatt became COO of the unit’s U.S. business in 2004.
