London-based Hawker Capital has launched a global macro fund, seeking to profit from the European sovereign debt crisis.
The new Vulcan Global Macro Fund is helmed by Jan Szilagyi, who joined Hawker last year from Duquesne Capital Management. At Duquesne, which founder Stanley Druckenmiller closed last year, Szilagyi was a senior macro analyst, based in New York, HFMWeek reports.
Morgan Stanley owns a minority stake in Hawker, which specializes in long/short commodities strategies.
