After four-and-a-half years running SkyBridge Capital Management alongside founder Anthony Scaramucci, Scott Prince has left the firm.
Prince's exit, which came a few weeks ago, was first reported by HFMWeek. A source close to the firm told FINalternatives that the decision to leave his management role at the firm came after the successful integration of SkyBridge and Citi Hedge Fund Management Group. However, the source added, Prince will still be available to the firm on a consulting basis as needed.
Two others have also recently left the firm--director Robert Mazurek left for Brigade Capital Management and Dane Fraser, vice president of investments, left for Credit Suisse.
Prince joined SkyBridge in 2007 as a managing partner from Eton Park Capital Management, where he was a partner. Prior to getting into hedge funds, Prince worked at Goldman Sachs. Skybridge has approximately $5.7 billion in assets under management and advisory.
