Perry Capital veteran Patrick Quinn has founded a new event-driven specialist and launched his first hedge fund.
New York-based Quinn Opportunity Partners unveiled its maiden hedge fund last month, HFMWeek reports. The intrinsic value strategy, which will focus on overlooked and contrarian investments in the event-driven space, debuted with $35 million in initial assets.

The new fund features quarterly liquidity with no lock-up period. It's initial capacity is $250 million.
