A former top Citadel Investment Group portfolio manager is readying a new industrials and energy hedge fund.

Robert Polak has founded Anchor Bolt Capital in Chicago. The new firm will invest in capital equipment, basic materials, energy and transportation stocks, Bloomberg News reports. Anchor Bolt's long book will be concentrated, with between 15 to 20 names. The rest of the 50 to 80 positions will be in the short book.
