Spruce Private Investors has named a well-traveled hedge fund veteran its first chief operating officer.
Robert Bastone started at his new job last month, HedgeFund.net reports.
Bastone got his start in hedge funds at Tiger Management, leaving the legendary firm in 2000 when founder Julian Robertson decided to enter semi-retirement—he has since unretired.

Spruce manages some $3 billion in both traditional and alternative investments for family offices and non-profit institutions.
