Three former traders from European hedge fund giant Brevan Howard Asset Management have raised $100 million for a natural resources fund to be launched next year.

Tim Whyte, Carl Linderum and Ben Belldegrun have yet to name their new firm, reports Financial News, citing a person “familiar with the situation.”
