Minneapolis investment bank Dougherty & Co. has launched its first hedge fund.
The Dougherty Absolute Equity Fund debuted on Sept. 1. The fund focuses on small-cap companies and features a deep-value bias, the firm said.

Schnell formerly worked at Telluride Asset Management and Deephaven Capital Management, where he also managed small-cap value hedge fund strategies.
