Two former top Asia traders at Credit Suisse are making the leap to the hedge fund industry.

Carlo Ramirez and Olivier Garcia plan to launch an Asia-focused fund in the second quarter, Bloomberg News reports. Ramirez will serve as chief investment officer of RG Investment Capital and Garcia as portfolio manager.

London-based RG, which was registered in October, will invest in stocks and derivatives linked to Asian companies, according to Bloomberg.
