Ex-Deutsche Bank Trader Haigh Readies US$200M Launch

Sep 16 2011 | 4:56am ET

The hedge fund founded by Deutsche Bank's former top proprietary emerging-markets debt trader will debut next month with a couple of hundred million dollars in initial assets.

Avantium Investment Management will launch its maiden EM Macro Master Fund on Oct. 3, HFMWeek reports. The well-awaited new fund will begin life with more than US$200 million in assets.

London-based Avantium was founded in the spring by Kay Haigh and seven members of his team at Deutsche Bank. The firm has spent the intervening months building an institutional infrastructure to attract investors.

"If you invest in people, structure and strategy, you create something that people want to be a part of," Haigh told HFM.
