Egerton Co-Founder Bollinger Launches Hedge Fund In Asia

Feb 17 2012 | 3:32am ET

William Bollinger, a co-founder of Egerton Capital and former protégé of Julian Robertson, has launched a new hedge fund in Singapore.

Bollinger's Judico Capital has started small—while it is on the Monetary Authority of Singapore's list of investment advisers in the city-state, it is not registered with the regulator, a step it will have to take only when it has 30 or more clients, the Financial Times reports.

One of the pioneers of the British hedge fund industry, Bollinger set up Egerton with John Armitage in 1994. He remains a minority partner at the US$5 billion firm, with Armitage still at the helm.

Bollinger got his start in hedge funds at Tiger Management, before leaving Robertson's nest to found a New York-based hedge fund, which he managed from 1987 until 1992.
