Perry's Quinn Launches Event-Driven Hedge Fund

May 26 2011 | 11:32am ET

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.

Quinn, formerly a senior event-driven and special situations analyst at Perry, will look particularly at companies that received government bailouts in the U.S. and Europe, as that backing is removed.

In addition to the main fund, Quinn is also running a separately managed account using his strategy.

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