Highbridge Capital Management co-founder Henry Swieca's new firm is set to launch its first hedge fund early next year.
Talpion will unveil a long/short equity fund, Talpion Equity Partners, in the first quarter, HFMWeek reports. Swieca has spent much of the past year building up a staff for the New York-based firm, including the hire last month of JL Advisors' Ezra Solomon as a research analyst.
Earlier this year, Swieca hired an event-driven team from One East Partners for Swieca Holdings, as his family office was then known. Swieca left Highbridge last year after completing his five-year commitment to new owners JPMorgan Chase.
Highbridge's co-founder and Swieca's childhood friend, Glenn Dubin, remains at the helm of Highbridge. The two still run a fund of hedge funds business, Corbin Capital Management, together.
