Findley's Bramshott Nets US$500M

Sep 15 2011 | 3:41am ET

Former Moore Capital Management portfolio manager Paul Findley has raised almost US$500 million for his new hedge fund in the three months since its launch.

London-based Bramshott Capital debuted in June, HFMWeek reports. The firm runs a European long/short equity strategy.

Findley set Bramshott up earlier this year, leaving Moore after less than a year-and-a-half. He joined Moore from Threadneedle Asset Management.

Findley hired Sarah-Jane Urry, from Threadneedle, as head of investor relations, Rupert Mahon of Stanhope Capital as chief operating officer and Paul Robbins of Lansdowne Partners as chief risk analyst.
