JPMorgan Chase’s Highbridge Capital Management is set to become the latest hedge fund to try its hand at private equity. The firm has reportedly hired Scott Kapnick, the former co-head of Goldman Sachs’ investment bank, to give it a foothold in the p.e. space.

The Financial Times reports that Kapnick will set up and run the new operation, which is expected to raise a pair of $1 billion to $2 billion funds. In addition to straight private equity deals, the new unit will also reportedly make long-term corporate debt investments.
