Visium Asset Management PM Heads To Tudor

Apr 8 2011 | 2:02pm ET

Portfolio manager Jamie Michaelson is leaving Visium Asset Management to join Paul Tudor Jones’ fund management shop, FINalternatives has learned.

At Visum, Michaelson was one of 11 portfolio managers of the Visium Global Fund, a multi-strategy vehicle which was up 20% last year. He had been with Visium since August of 2008.

It is not known what role Michaelson will take up at Tudor Investment Corp., which did not return calls by press time. Visium declined to comment.

Earlier this week Visium announced that it had acquired the business and investment teams of Catalyst Investment Management Co., which specializes in credit and event-driven strategies. The Catalyst team will continue to run the existing Catalyst portfolio, which has $250 million in assets under management.

Visium was founded in 2005 by Jacob Gottlieb. The firm currently manages $2.7 billion in long/short equity, credit, and multi-strategy vehicles.
