Pequot Capital Management veteran Lilik Takahashi has set up his own shop, Piala Capital Management, and will serve as an advisor to a soon-to-be-launched Japanese equity long/short fund.
The fund employs fundamental catalyst driven strategies with “mildly” concentrated positions, according to sources close to the firm, and it does not have a bias on net/gross exposure and/or market cap.The fund is currently looking for seed investors.
Takahashi declined to comment on his new venture.
Takaheshi’s hedge fund career started in 2002 when he established Ward Ferry Management's Japan presence. He moved on to DKR Oasis serving as a senior analyst covering a Japan long/short strategy in the small mid cap space in 2005, and served as a sole Japan investment representative last year for Pequot.
