Edoma Essentially Flat In First Quarter

Edoma Partners' first full quarter in business was quite a forgettable one.

Literally: The hedge fund, which debuted late last year, did essentially nothing from January through March, rising just 0.2%, Bloomberg News reports. The average hedge fund is up about 1.5% on the year.

Edoma, founded by former Goldman Sachs proprietary trading chief Pierre-Henri Flamand, is one of the largest hedge fund launches since the start of the financial crisis. The fund raised $2 billion from investors before closing to new investors almost immediately.

London-based Edoma is one of at least four new hedge funds launched in recent months by Goldman prop. trading veterans.
