Hudson, Ex-Shumway, Launches Hedge Fund

May 24 2011 | 1:40pm ET

The first of what are likely to be several successors to the recently-shuttered Shumway Capital Partners is in business.

Shumway veteran Paul Hudson has launched Glade Brook Capital, HFMWeek reports. Hudson was not one of the five former portfolio managers at the once-$8 billion hedge fund identified in February by Hedge Fund Alert as likely to launch their own funds.

It is unclear what strategy Glade Brook will employ or what its initial assets are, although HFMWeek reports that Hudson's former boss, Chris Shumway, might be seeding the fund. What is clear is that the new firm includes Paul Barron, formerly controller of Shumway and now Glade Brook's CFO.

Shumway, a Tiger Management veteran, decided in February to close his eponymous hedge fund, which is still being liquidated. The move followed massive redemptions in the wake of Shumway's November decision to step back from day-to-day management of the firm.
